Note­wor­thy ef­fort from trom­bon­ist

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

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."
