Whit Friday Adjudications

Here are some of the adjudicators comments, as far as I can tell through the illegible scrawl that is adjudicators' handwriting:

Dobcross:–
Loose to open in ensemble semiquavers! Solo cornet also loose on semiquavers! Tuning good in lower band. Cornets as a section not well in tune! Dynamics very good. Sop plays well. 2nd time. Why rush the simple quavers of bar 4! Basic control! Good to close – but again, rush on the simple parts
(all exclamation marks are as Mr Kevin Wadsworth wrote it)

Grotton:–
Good opening with good sounds, nice cornet, misses in nervous sections and playing at times is untidy. Dynamics are rather safe, bass solo good sounds, but short note values, upper band well done.
Trio, nice euphs, some neat playing from cornets, final section not always secure, missed notes and intonation suffers in upper band. DC, better generally this time, but (squiggle) misses in (p) section (ff) section tempo is pushy, bass solo gets untidy but a precise finale. Thank you

Lees:–
Tuning worries and ensemble not as tight as it could be. Soloist b i'm afraid – you sound happiest at H. Bass solo rushing? Nice middle band tune at trio and background work is good. Soprano enjoys last strain – listen to the rest of the band" it all sounds a touch panic stricken – more time is needed to play with a bit more consideration! Thank you!

Uppermill:–
A rather nervous start. A pity about the glitches that were heard. Tempo tended to fluctuate. Basses could be stronger in trio– nice euphonium here. Balance could be better especially before DC. A sensible choice of march for this band.
(That was from Uncle Goff btw)

Lydgate went with a more standardised system and we got marked :–
Performance – Fair
Sections: Cornets – attention required
Horns – fair
Bari/Euph – fair
Troms – fair
Basses – fair
Use of dynamics/musicianship – fair/attention required
Intonation – fair/attention required
Start was together but intonation was not good. As you progress the cornets sound laboured in semiquaver sections. Bass solo passage quite good.

I'll put them up on the board in the MC foyer, and also post any more up here.
