Fourth Section Test Piece
Three Spanish Impressions by Alan Fernie
The band took part in the 4th section and for the second year running the band was drawn to play first.
There was a long wait for the other 20 bands to play. When the results were announced and the band came in the first six everyone was very pleased, especially Kevin Goodwin conducting his first contest.
The band again has shown how consistently they give good performances by remaining in the top three of the gradings
The one advantage of playing first, you can relax in the Torquay sunshine and in the Riviera center
