Burneside Brass Qualify for the Nationals at the Area Contests!

In March 1993 Mr Bill Turton and Mr Peter Crawford decided to form a brass band in Burneside after two local bands folded. 2013 is the 20th Anniversary for Burneside Brass so it is with great pride that Burneside Brass can begin their 20th anniversary celebrations by qualifying for the Brass Band National Finals which will be held in Cheltenham in September.

We qualified in 2nd place playing the set test piece Devon Fantasy and not only did we qualify under the direction of our MD Mr Laurie Johnston but our Solo Euphonium Player Mr David French won the Ralph Bell Memorial Trophy which was presented to the best Euphonium player.

A big well done to all the players and families of the band, a lot of hard work has gone into preparing for this contest and the result was the just reward for all that hard work.
