National finals beckon for Market Rasen Band

The National stage beckons once again for the Resdev Market Rasen Band after coming second in the Midlands Area Championships earlier this month.

Members will now be practicing hard in preparation for the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain which take place on Saturday September 21 at the Centaur Centre at Cheltenham Racecourse,

At the regional championships the band produced a performance of the set test piece that impressed the two adjudicators, Major Paul Norley and Alan Morrison, who said it was “a performance of controlled quality and fine well balanced musicality”

The band’s musical director Alan Needham added: “It has been a good year for the Band. Winning the Bolsover Festival of Brass in October was a great result, however to reach the National Finals again has been an added boost to everybody.

“The band deserves every success that comes their way as they work so hard and don’t always get the rewards of their endeavours”

The band will be celebrating their good fortune at 
its upcoming spring 
concert in The Festival Hall, Market Rasen, on April 27 at 7.30pm
