Dun­can­rig band­takes gold­prize

East Kilbride News - - NEWS -

Dun­can­rig Sec­ondary School’s con­cert band went for gold – and clinched it.

The school achieved yet another over­all first place at the Scot­tish Con­cert Band Fes­ti­val in Perth.

Prin­ci­pal teacher of mu­sic and drama at the school, Jo Ram­say, said: “I was so proud of each and ev­ery one of the pupils who per­formed.

“They were com­mended for their vi­brant and en­er­getic play­ing, their ex­cel­lent en­sem­ble aware­ness and rich tone qual­ity.

“Their per­for­mance of ‘Ara­bian Dances’ was so ex­cit­ing and well in­ter­preted that it achieved a gold plus.

“Con­sid­er­ing this band ranges from S1-6 and in­cludes play­ers who have only been play­ing a year or two, this is some achieve­ment and all credit must go to Mr Shanks who has work tire­lessly with them to achieve this high stan­dard.”
