Pre Contest Festival 2016

Garry AmbroseNews

The band enjoyed a good Pre Contest Festival at St Pancras Church last evening in the company of a very appreciative audience.dsc_0180

Our soloist,  Owen Farr, demonstrated why he is considered one of the best Tenor Horn players today. We are grateful to Besson for supporting his attendance at this concert.

It was recognised that BM James Williams had attended all 70 of the band’s Pre Contest Festivals. Here he is shown dsc_0206with BM Iain Parkhouse and Owen Farr.

We were also grateful to Brian Turner CBE for ably compering us through the programme.

For those who were unable to attend  a copy of the programme is available to download here.
