What a night! Cathedral Concert March 23rd

Oh what a night! Exeter Cathedral Concert

The joint concert with Tedburn Community Choir called Villages in Harmony – bringing together The Hatherleigh Silver Band under the musical direction of Matt Green, Tedburn St Mary Community Choir, Orchard Harmony from Whimple and the Marsh Green Melody Makers under the musical direction of Julia Green was an evening celebrating the joy of music making.

The concert was held at Exeter Cathedral and it was full! It was a night to remember for all of us. The band played their hearts out and the choirs were equally as magnificent.

A DVD and CD has been made of the entire performance and will be available soon.

We are hoping to hold an evening get together for anybody who would like to come and watch the concert on the big screen. Keep an eye out for more information and a date.

Hat Trick for HSB at Regional Championships

Hat Trick for band at Regional Championships

Competing in the 3rd section for the first time for many years, following winning the 4th section for the previous 2 years, the band were placed 1st out of the 18 bands in the section, winning a pennant, shield, £200 and an invitation for the third year running to the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain held at Cheltenham Racecourse in September. The win culminates an intensive rehearsal schedule for the band since the start of the year and winning on our first appearance means promotion to the 2nd Section for 2019, the highest ranking that the band will have ever achieved during its long history.

We are hoping to hold a small concert in Hatherleigh soon to showcase the winning test piece Napoleon on The Alps by Philip Harper, Musical Director of the amazing Cory Band along with live performances of some of the tracks on our CD. Keep a look out for posters and on social media for information on this.

SWBBA 4th Section Winners

Hatherleigh Silver Band has done it again!
It’s another first place in the 4th Section for the band at The South West Brass Band Contest in Torquay on the 4th November. This time we played 3rd, early in the morning, which does seem to be our optimum time to play! We played The Journal of Philaeas Fogg as our ‘own choice’ test piece and smashed it! We couldn’t have played it any better and left the stage feeling extremely satisfied with our performance. Whatever the results were going to be, we knew we couldn’t have done any more. The adjudicators agreed with us and made us the winners of the 4th Section. After coming second two years running, we were very pleased indeed.

The icing on the cake was the news that our Bass Section, consisting of Robin Wonnacott on Bb bass, Louisa Mitchell and Mike Isaacs on Eb Bass and our regular visiting band member Harrison Marsh on Bb, won Best Bass Section! So a double victory and two cups for us to display. As you can imagine we enjoyed celebrating well into the evening!
