First Place Bathurst Eisteddfod 2016

On the 11th of September 2016, the Band participated in the 71st Bathurst Eisteddfod at the Bathurst Memorial Entertainment Centre.

Featuring three other contestants in the section (193 – Open Concert Band), we played last with a new repertoire piece: Vesuvius.

Awarded 86 points, we were appointed first place and given some very delightful and useful feedback from the adjudicator. He stated the band played with a high level of intensity and colour, as well as providing an entertaining interpretation of Vesuvius.

We are all very wrapped to have such positive feedback, and congratulate the other competitors of our section who also played so very well! It was a wonderful day for playing, and amazing music was produced. Our musical director, Wendy, did a fantastic job inspiring us all to achieve high this year! Thank you everyone for their perseverance!
