Message from the Band
We love music and we love our band, but we will be following further guidance issued by BBE. Until further notice we have cancelled rehearsals, engagements and committee meetings. If you have an engagement booked with us, our Secretary will be getting in touch with you to discuss any options to re-book.
These are strange times and we're missing being in the bandroom. We hope all of our followers, friends and family are safe and well. We'll get through this together.
Weymouth Concert Brass made the difficult decision not to compete in the 2020 West of England Regional Finals of the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain due to the age range of their members and the advice of BBE.
The week before the contest the band played the test piece Endurance at the Weymouth Music Festival. The months of practising under Helen Brind and Keith Aspin on the test piece ensured the band gave a very good performance .
: ''a very impressive account of this demanding competition piece. The professionalism was clearly evident and the 'narrative' vividly delivered. One could sense the level of concentration and determination! Isolated bits of intonation could be tidied, along with occasional entries and speed changes. There was some very accomplished solo playing in all sections; good ensemble, blend and overall technical competence. Thrilling crescendo at the piece's climax''
