Wychavon Festival of Brass 2022

The band recently competed at the Wychavon Festival of Brass, on Saturday 29 October.


A long-term supporter of the event, the BTM Band participated this year in Section 1 & Championship Section (as bands are allowed to enter in the section above their current National Grading).


The band chose to perform the following works:

  1. Laudes Domini (Gordon)

  2. Live and Let Die (McCartney/McCartney arr. Farr) - Soprano Cornet Soloist Clint Miller

  3. I Know Thou Art Mine (Ballantine)

  4. Neapolitan Scenes (Massenet arr. Newsome)

  5. La Mer -Beyond The Sea (Trenet/Lasry arr. Harper)

Both performances went well, although the Section 1 performance contained some unforced errors and intonation issues.


The band eventually came sixth out of 15 in a strong Section 1 field, and 14th out of 20 in the Championship Section.


Congratulations to the prize-winners across all the sections on the day, and we look forward to coming back next year.
