Rehearsals gone, the weekend here,
Time to put away our fears.
Now is the time for all the Band
To focus on the job in hand.
Robin ordered “concentration”
And he has been our inspiration.
A good start made, we did not waver,
Though sometimes missed the odd quaver!
Allegro Vivo clearly played
Remarks on “good percussion” made.
Well done Alex! What a star!
It was the best you’ve played by far.
Euphoniums into K were good
And good horns added to the mood.
Dynamic contrasts were made
And confident playing was displayed.
Adagio has a good flow
Well played at P Q and O.
Prestissimo movement rocks along
All the players playing strong.
Fine Allargando style to end;
Not a lot for us to mend
Tempo – Robin well controlled
And it also must be told
This was a difficult piece we played
And good handling by the players made.
At Merthyr Contest SECOND PLACE
At Weston we stepped up the pace
And here we were awarded FIRST
Which gives us even greater thirst
To set our sights up high
Our aim now is to reach the sky!
Sadly, we have to say “adieu”
To Sarah, Greg and Ellie, who
Are all moving far away.
We hope to meet again one day.
New challenges they have to face
And now we have to fill their place.
We thank them for the parts they played
And for the difference they have made.
We wish them well in all they do,
Good health and happiness, too.
Thank you Robin for all you’ve done
For making hard work seem like FUN.
This weekend’s results a true reflection
Of your hard work and direction.
