For anyone that’s interested – Barrow Shipyard Junior Band won the Junior Band section – 1st out of 6 bands! This also means we get a £100 bursary as well as a shield.
And ‘Brasstastic’ my new group made of primary school pupils came 3rd in the Brass Ensemble section, again out of six bands.
I am absolutely exhausted – I’ve been at the music festival all day listening to soloists, and got back at nine and finished off the final plans for poetry workshop tomorrow, so too tired for the Sunday poem I’m afraid.
I am very happy – but maybe too tired to feel it properly. St Pius Brass Ensemble came 1st in the brass ensemble session – beating off competition from much older bands. The kids all stepped up and delivered. Very proud.
