On Saturday, 19th March, the Fulham Brass Band will be competing in the Second section of The London & Southern Counties Region of the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain, at the Stevenage Arts and Leisure Centre. This brings to an end the band’s reign as Champions, when the trophy is handed back.Saturday represents the culmination of several months of feverish practice and rehearsal by the band. The test piece for the second section is “Resurgam” by Eric Ball. This is a great favourite of Brass Bands, but will test all the bands to their extreme. We hope that our performance will peak at the contest and that we might be exchanging, rather than just returning, some silverware. Thanks go out to all band members for their diligence and especially to Simon Jones, who has worked tirelessly to iron out all of those little bumps in the performance. Our best wishes and good luck go out to all of those competing in our section and may the best band win.
