Weymouth Concert Brass at the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain 2018

WCB came 16th out of the finest 18 third section bands in the UK. Not quite our day, however it was a huge honour and achievement to represent the West of England today. The band thoroughly enjoyed their performance, and would like to thank everyone for their overwhelming support.

Weymouth Concert Brass at the Weymouth Music Festival  

Summary of the day at the Festival. Due to the ice and snow on the previous days, we were the only musical group to attend. It was our good fortune that the due to the weather the adjudicator was Howard Evans who has adjudicated at many Brass band championships at the highest level After the performance he gave a master class in Contest piece preparation and brass technique. The constructive criticism which Howard provided gave everyone a lift; everything Howard pointed out made perfect sense and has raised our confidence for next Saturday immensely. We would like to offer heartfelt thanks for listening to us; for taking the time to talk us through the piece section by section, and for providing us individually with suggestions and guidance for the Contest
