Success at Areas - Third place

Celebrating as the results were read out.....

At this time of uncertainty it was great to celebrate. The band was lucky enough to come third at the West of England regional finals contest held in Torquay at the weekend. It was definitely not the normal party atmosphere with a few bands pulling out due to Covid19 but Forest of Dean Brass were able to attend and play well.

Test Piece was Legacy, a new piece by Tom Davoren.

The idea for 'Legacy' was originally conceived in 2018 as a short work celebrating the life and achievements of Welsh politician Aneurin Bevan and the 70th Anniversary of the British National Health Service.

Thankyou goes to Gareth Ritter for all his time and effort to get the band this result. The third place means FODB qualify for The National Finals in September. #teamforestofdeanbrass
