On October 15 the Band travelled to Elland near Halifax to take part in the Pogson-Bray entertainment contest. Our 20 minute set included the March Black Knight, Guardian of My Soul, April in Paris, played by our Flugel Player Mike Waudby, Brass Machine, a four cornet and soprano feature, and finished with Bach’s Organ Fugue. The Band were delighted when out of 11 competing bands we were announced as the overall winners. Congratulations to our friends at Emley who’s principal cornet Cameron Chapman picked up best Soloist, and our friends at Shepherd Group Youth Band who won best youth band.
