Band show they be­long with the top brass

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

AMERSHAM Band came fourth in the First Sec­tion Fi­nals of the Na­tional Brass Band Cham­pi­onship, hav­ing only been pro­moted to the First Sec­tion last year.

This is the band’s high­est ever re­sult and adds ic­ing to the cake of cel­e­bra­tions of the 175th year since the band first formed in 1843.

Play­ing against 16 of the top First Sec­tion bands from across the coun­try at the fi­nals, in Chel­tenham, the band drew the last per­for­mance slot and had a long wait be­fore tak­ing the stage at 9pm.

Nev­er­the­less, the ad­ju­di­ca­tors were im­pressed with the per­for­mance, with the sum­mary: “A solid and well-man­aged per­for­mance with good solo lines and band sound.”

Band chair­man Fred Har­ri­son said: “We are de­lighted with this re­sult. It is a great achieve­ment and a just re­ward for all the hard work that went into pre­par­ing the test piece.”
