Usk waltz to another win

May 8, 2016

Usk Band recently competed at the SEWBBA Welsh League contest 3rd Section, in Merthyr Tydfil. The band played a testing piece titled 'Fantasy for Brass Band'. The band's performance certainly found favour with the adjudicator Glyn Williams, as he award the band first place.

 

The day just kept getting better for the band as they also scooped more awards. Musical Director Jeff picked up the Ivor Barnett Memorial Shield as the winning conductor in the section. Not to be outdone by his Dad, Jeff's son Jamie (Euphonium), also picked up two awards. Firstly for the best Euphonium player in the section and secondly for the best instrumentalist in the section.

 

Jamie commented:

 

'What an incredible day out for the band, as it was our first contest in third section we wanted to put on a good show, but to win all these awards is something special. Dad keeps getting the best out of the band.'

 

It is the third year running Jamie has won 'best euphonium player' in 3rd section at this particular contest. 

 

The band are now looking forward to a busy summer ahead...
