Once again this year some of our young players took part in this Festival. We had a strong representative group playing in the 9 years and under classes which was very encouraging. In total 12 of our young players took part and for the second year we had two Brass soloists taking part in the Grand Finale Concert held at Christchurch Oswestry on March 5th. Photographed above is Taya Castley with the 15 Year and under Brass Solo winners Shield. This is the 4th Year in a row a Youth member of our Band has won this Pretigious award.
