State Band Championships 2018 – Solos & Ensembles Comp

By September 5, 2018 December 1st, 2018 News

For part two of this year’s State Band Championships, musicians from around our State took over the Brighton Secondary School facilities for a 2nd weekend – this time for the Solo and Party events.

A number of our braver members, still running high on adrenaline (not coffee this time) from our earlier success, ventured on stage, standing-alone, going head-to-head with our peers from other bands. Our success at this year’s Championships continued with an impressive 6 top 3 podium finishes from 9 sections. We were extremely fortunate to have the talented services of Beck Lucas and Harry Matear on piano as our accompanist’s – thank you guys very much appreciated.  Photos courtesy Robbie Cowley.
