Hello all,

The Midlands Area Brass Band Championships website has announced the dates for next year’s Areas contest. They will take place in Bedworth on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th March.

Term 2 ends on Friday 13th March.

This will involve some interesting organisation skills… ;-)

What 4barsrest thought of us

Writing about web page http://www.4barsrest.com/articles/2007/art692a.asp

Outside of these top four performances were a couple of others that 4BR felt were also very good and worthy of qualification for the finals.

The first of these was the University of Warwick band that put in a very commendable performance and one, which we thought, could have nicked a qualification place. The band may have fallen a little short due to some shaky soloist entries and lack of clarity in some of the quicker passages.

There was a feeling of great togetherness between the sections, particularly the muted cornets and xylophone and the dynamics were well controlled and varied. It’s back to the drawing board however having just missed out on the finals.

Excellent basses as always I see…..

Writing about web page http://www.4barsrest.com/articles/2006/art558a.asp

4barsrest have just published their Midlands Area review. I quote:

The surprise of the day though rested with the students from University of Warwick's Brass Society. We were simply aghast at finding out how low they'd been placed, having written comments such as "good bold opening phrase", "nicely controlled tempo which keeps moving well" and "lovely solid bass foundation that makes the band's sound so much better", 12th place seemed very harsh indeed. In fact looking through the notes again, it's hard to see a critical remark made on the day other than "a shade inconsistent".
