By stdennisband

St Dennis Junior Band at CBBA Contest 2015St Dennis Junior Band won first place at the Cornwall Brass Band Associations Diamond Jubilee Contest last Saturday (17th October 2015). This makes them current “Cornish Junior Band Champions”.

The Junior Band played a medley of pieces including their own piece “Our Junior Band” which was written for them by Mr John Brush. They also won first prize for the best hymn tune performance of “Treskerby” within the Junior Band Section.

The Youth Band entered the Youth Section and won third prize.

Both bands were conducted by Junior/Youth Band Musical Director Rachael Sargent who has worked so hard preparing the bands for the contest. These results show that the Youth/Junior Bands are certainly heading in the right direction.

Congratulations to both Bands!
