2nd at the Euros!


On Sunday 4th May 2014 the Junior Band took part in the European Youth Brass Band Championships held in Perth Concert Hall.

Competing against from Norway, Scotland, England and Northern Ireland the Junior Band gave a very solid performance throughout there 20 minute programme that included Pound the Streets, Sandy and Jock, Little Suite for Brass and New Colonial.

The junior band was placed 2nd with Norwegian Band Manger Skulemusikklag taking the coveted 1st prize. All in all it is quite a remarkable result for our bunch of kids, well done to all. What a performance, what a result!

Listen to the band as it happened with spoken adjudication!
