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!
