Well Done to OUR Silverband!!!
By Neil Price, Co-Editor

September 24, 2016: Hatherleigh Silver Band are now officially one of the Top three 4th Section Brass Bands in the Country! They came 3rd in our section in the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain Finals held on the 17th September at Cheltenham Racecourse, an amazing achievement for the Band. There were 19 bands in the section and they came from as far afield as Dunfirmline and Crystal Palace. We were the only band representing Devon in the 4th Section. We worked very hard in the run up to the contest, it takes a lot of commitment from all of the our players and the Musial Director but the hard work pays off. Our MD Matt Green had high hopes for us and again he helped us bring out detail and excitement in the piece and we gave a great performance in difficult acoustics! The piece was Music from Kantara by Kenneth Downie. Have a look on our website to see the photos and hopefully we will have the recording of our winning performance available for all to hear! See their website for more details here Hear them next… They have a joint Concert on Monday 24th October at Hatherleigh Parish Church at 7.30pm. Then the next engagement will be the Carnival of course and that’s followed by our Christmas Concert on Thursday 8th December in the Community Centre at 7.30pm. Vacancies We still have vacancies in the Cornet, Trombone and Percussion sections of the band so if you play now or have played in the past and would like to be part of a friendly, sociable group of people then please come along and meet us. We can accommodate you whichever instrument you play! Please phone Jane Fawcett our secretary, ahead of your planned attendance if you’re making a special effort to get there on a Thursday. We look forward to welcoming you. Please check out our website for news, engagements and pictures at www.hatherleighsilverband.co.uk. If you’d like to book the band for your event, please get in touch with our Secretary, Jane Fawcett on 01837 810791.
