Another trophy!

band 3An early start left Fulham Brass Band a little hungry and bleary eyed as we set off to compete at the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain 2014 held at Cheltenham Racecourse.  Weeks of hard work from the band and our conductor John Ward had prepared us well but nothing could hold back the nerves felt by many on the day.  The very beautiful but technical “Traversada” composed by Oliver Waespi challenged all the bands but we managed to put on a pretty good show and were able to come away with another trophy as 3rd prize winners of the Second section.  Let’s hope our winning streak continues as we enter our most challenging of years competing in the 1st section from January!
