A special mention to Euphonium player Dave DeMair, who has returned to the USA after completing his studies at the Royal Northern College of Music.
Hebden Bridge Band wins 2013 BRASS FACTOR!
The band travelled to the Picturedome in Holmfirth under the Musical Direction of Iain McKnight and delivered an excellent performance on the night amid the smoke and lights on the BRASS FACTOR stage. The judged noted that the band delivered a more traditional program than some competing bands, but did so with precision and musical quality. The audience also helped pick the winner using a voting system and Hebden Bridge came out on top to pick up the trophy.
The band played :
The Fox Fanfare (arr Andi Cook)
Stingray (arr Sandy Smith)
Blue John (Trombone soloist Charlotte Horsfield)
Freigukeln (arr Sandy Smith),
The Witch of the Westmerlands (arr Philip Harper)
Victory! from Cry of the Celts (Peter Graham)
