GCB performed Traversada by Oliver Waespi, finishing 9th out of 21 competing bands in what was described as a “very good technical performance” by the adjudicators.
The Community Band participated as a non-competing band, playing Philip Sparke’s A Malvern Suite. This was the first outing for new conductor Alex Dawson, and it was great to see the players gaining more contest experience!
Both bands enjoyed a good day out in Kilmarnock. Rehearsals have now finished for the year and Christmas fundraising starts soon, then both bands will start preparing for the Scottish Championships in the New Year.
