Brass at the Guild competition

Wingates Brass Band   January 30, 2017   Comments Off on Brass at the Guild competition

After a busy month for Wingates, the band competed in the Brass at the Guild competition yesterday. This is a contest that has become well known as a good chance to “run out” the test piece for the Area Championships in February, which is exactly what the band did as we performed ‘Pageantry’ by Herbert Howells.
Having had a CD recording last weekend to prepare for, the band had limited rehearsal time before the contest.
However after a good performance when it mattered, which featured some excellent solo playing, the band were pleased to finish in 3rd place out of the 9 competing bands.
Our congratulations go to Milnrow Band in 2nd place and the winners, from over the Pennines, Hatfield Band.
