There were 11 ensembles and 15 soloists - more soloists than ever before, and the introduction of an open-age ensemble category proved to be a success

It was a fantastic day, and so good to see members enjoying themselves. The high quality of every band, and individuals showed that a lot of practicing and hard work went on in the line up to the competition. All the members and leaders should be proud of themselves wherever they came in the competition and we look forward to next year's competition.
