Following up from the post a couple of days ago, here is the full story:
At the Riviera International Conference Centre, Torquay Shrewton Silver Band gave a storming performance to take 2nd Place in the West of England Brass Band Association’s Regional Championship Second Section.
The rendition of Ex Terra Lucem (From the Ground, Light) received excellent reviews from the adjudicators and sees the band through to the national finals in Cheltenham in September for the first time since 2010.
Musical Director Mike Dunford was delighted at the result and said
This is a huge result. It demonstrates the quality this band has and our place back in the nationals is fully justified.
The band has a busy schedule of concerts, marches, services and competitions and need players. Players are welcome right across the band – specific vacancies exist for Euphonium, Eb Bass and Trombone. The band meets for practice at the Methodist Hall, Shrewton on Monday and Thursday evenings from 7:30pm.
There is also a beginners class every Monday from 6:30pm at the Methodist Hall which lasts for 45 minutes. New students learn to play as part of a band and will be given an instrument, music and guidance. What’s more…it’s FREE.
