Here are the comments
for our video:
Stål Himmel - Nice to see a bandstand featured! Loving all of the pictures
of the band performing. Although nothing will replace normal banding, this
contest has become a great form of band-withdrawal therapy. This is a lovely
piece and fits the sentiment of their programme brilliantly.
Song for the Frontline - Lovely solo from Principal cornet and brilliant
tribute to the wonderful men and women of the NHS! Fantastic demonstration of
how they made their band room a safe space for rehearsals! I think this should
be distributed as an example should we have to follow these procedures for
the foreseeable in order to go back to band safely. This is played with such
heart - bittersweet, but beautiful.
See the Light - soloist Charlotte Lewis - YES, I love this section for
bringing Disney into the contest. Stunning playing from Charlotte and your
background is beautiful too, I may need to build a background like this in
my office! Great soprano sound. I never realised how much this song actually
does sum up our current situation - all those days watching from the
The Great Escape - well I was just wiping the mascara from my face and
nearly poked myself in the eye with the sudden introduction from this
classic! Short but sweet.
I'm sure James Sparks would have been so proud of this band's fantastic
performance. A wonderful programme - congratulations!
