St Dennis Band Solo & Quartet Contest 2018

The contest was held on Saturday 24 November 2018. The Venue was the Whitemoor Methodist Chapel who we appreciate allowing us to use their premises. We had Band representatives from St Dennis, Lanner Academy ,Mount Charles, St Keverne, St Breward, Forest of Dean & Bodmin. Thanks to the Adjudicator Gareth Churcher who commented that there was a lot of musical talent performing at the contest and he had enjoyed his day with us very much. Thanks also goes to our Official Accompanist, Hannah Hawken who did a brilliant service to us. Hannah is also an accomplished Brass Player herself. Our Committee and friends become available with their input during and on the day to encourage the day to go smoothly. Huge thanks goes to them. Hope to see you and more contestants next year. Please support all the Solo Contests, they are there to support you. The date of the St Dennis Solo & Quartet Contest 2019 is Saturday 30th November. Please enter the date in your Diary.
