Old Hall Brass made a successful return to Hardraw Scar, finishing 2nd overall and winning the ‘Best March’ prize in Section A
The band’s programme consisted of the following:
March – Knight Templar
Hymn – Nearer My God To Thee (‘Deep Blue’)
Solo – The Bare Necessities
Theme from ‘Superman’
The band’s opening march ‘Knight Templar’ deservedly won the Best March trophy, whilst during the opening of ‘Nearer My God to Thee’, the heavens opened (again!), adding to the atmospheric sounds.
John Sudworth’s solo of The Bare Necessities brought the house down, especially with the antics of the back row, horns and Roxy North’s excellent flugal playng!
Superman brought the programme to a glorious end, followed by Old Hall Brass and MD John North leading the massed bands at the end.
Hopefully the weather will be kinder next year, but a superb contest, and deserved success for Old Hall Brass.
