Solo & Quartet Contest 2017 – Results

On Saturday 25th November 2017 we held our Solo & Quartet Contest in the Whitemoor Methodist Chapel, Whitemoor. We had a most enjoyable musical day. Thanks to our Adjudicator, Paul Richards from Flowers Band. Our Accompanists Anne Fleet & Hannah Hawken who we rely on so much each year to accompany our youngsters so professionally. Thanks to our hard working committee and helpers who help previously and during the day. We are very lucky to have been able to use Whitemoor Methodist Chapel as our Venue. It was very much appreciated and was a great Venue to house the Contest.

Thank you for all the Competitors and we hope to see you all next year.
