Juniors Win at Brass in the Park Music Festival – 15th September 2009

As can be read in the main news section the juniors gave a very good concert in June.

After a short break in July rehearsals started for the Newtongrange Brass in the Park Music Festival. The group was entered in the Junior Band Novice Section. The ten minute programme chosen was Gospel Rock, Groovy Kind Of Love, Russia, Junior Blues and Ob-La-Di.

The youngsters played exceptionally well and pleased adjudicator, Nigel Boddice, so much that he awarded them the only gold award among the 11 groups.

This meant of course that the Creetown Silver Band Juniors won their section and were presented with a certificate, a trophy and a voucher from a musical instrument retailer.

John Birse, on solo cornet, also impressed Mr Boddice and was awarded the medal for the best instrumentalist.

Well done to all players and their tutors.
