Scottish Championships 2017

The band played at the Scottish Championships in Perth Concert Hall on 11th March. The chosen test piece this year for the 1st section was Philip Sparkes Land of the Long White Cloud. Drawn number four, the band gave a great performance of the testpiece. Such was the high standard of the competition that it would only take a few faults creeping in to attract the judges attention. At the end of the days competition the band finished in a creditable fifth place, with Newtongrange Silver taking the win ahead of Bathgate, both of whom go on to represent Scotland at the National Finals in September. We pass our congratulations on to the winners.
