With just 17 days to go, contest preparations are full steam ahead as we go through the final touches of Penlee and our other contest pieces.
Our Musical Director Carissa Davies has been working hard in front of the band and behind the scenes to organise, prepare, and lead as we get closer to contest day.
Carissa, the band really appreciates your dedication and commitment to getting us all ship shape so we can do Feilding proud and indeed ourselves proud in Hamilton.
On the marching front, our Drum Major Stephen Lawton has been busy with the band getting us street ready for the Street March section of the National Contest.
A man with many years of experience leading us down the right path of “covering and dressing, march behind the person in front, mark time, knees up, don’t look around!”
Windy or cold, we went out marching to the beat of Steve, and we are all the better for your knowledge and experience so thank you. PS. Happy birthday young man.
As we get closer to the Contest, its good to remember that with the guidance from Carissa and Stephen, a band is not a band without players. Behind all these stands are musicians that come together to have fun, be serious and enjoy playing music.
That is what makes Feilding Brass, a great band to be a part of.
National Contest is just around the corner and we look forward to maybe seeing you there, but if not hope you can watch it live on https://www.brassbanned.com/
