By stdennisband

St Dennis Youth Band have had their second win of the year at a major competition, this time at the Annual Championships of the South West Brass Band Association (SWBBA) held at Torquay earlier this month. Playing ‘Patterns’ by Edward Gregson, they scooped the top prize in their section – The Teignbridge Silver Salver.

With an average age of just 9 years the band also won their section at the West of England Bandsmen’s Festival, held at Bugle in June this year, and currently hold the title of Cornwall Junior Band Champions.

Under the baton of Rachael Sargent since 2013 the band has gone from strength to strength.

I’m so proud of everything these young players have achieved this year, they’ve worked really hard. We are so grateful to have such dedicated young people, and their parents, who support them in all they do. They’re all still so young but are already reaching great heights.

Rachael said.

The band always welcomes new players whether complete beginners or more experienced players.
