The City of Birmingham Brass Band are very proud to have achieved 2nd place in the West Midlands Brass Band Association Area Contest 2018 (4th section), held on March 11th. Drawn to play number 1 it was somewhat of a rush to get to the the performance venue in Bedworth from the rehearsal room in Bulkington but if anything having less time to think about it maybe helped to quell any nerves and the band played confidently, with a balanced warm tone, good intonation and assured soloists (from the adjudicators’ comments). The band are thrilled with the result and looking forward to the Nationals for the first time in quite a few years!
