Conducted by Chris Bentham
Olympic Fanfare (Summon the Heroes)
Solid start with good detail and all flows nicely with good balanced sound to conclusion
Charivari (Cornet solo)
Detailed start and all in control. Super Soloist - All seems well in control and accompaniments do well. Euphonium backs up well. Some first class accompanists always allow you to hear the Soloist. Well done.
Soloist, you make it sound easy You are using space. Well done!!
This is all in control and rhythmic and good dynamic contrasts. Just got a touch loose towards the end but lots of control. Thanks.
Duet for Two Cats (Cornet & Trombone Duet)
All very effectively done and accompaniments did well also.
Both well done! Thanks.
Effective start and as you progress you observe the dynamic contrasts well. All well in control and good 'Grandioso' at 10.
15 + 4 untidy. 16, Horn and Euphonium good, also Flugel. 17 effective and onto a super close.
Very, Very, Good Performance.
