Noteworthy effort from trombonist
A TALENTED trombone player walked away from a contest with the best soloist trophy.
On Sunday October 25, Amersham Community Brass held its first contest where Anisha Khilji was awarded with the best soloist.
The band had been invited to take part in the Addlestone Challenging Brass event, which is a competition between four local bands. The band played an entertainment programme based on a theme of holidays, with pieces from around the world such as Waltzing Matilda, African Funk and O Sole Mio, featuring the winning solo by Anisha. The band also played the set piece march Viscount Nelson.
Amersham Community Brass musical director, Mary Wells, said: “Everyone worked really hard to prepare the programme and I am delighted with our performance.
“We made a great impression at our contest debut, even though we were up against much more experienced contesting bands. We should all be very proud of what we have achieved."
