Waitakere Brass Clean Up at ABAs! [Oct 2008]

Last Sunday's Auckland Band Association competition saw 'The Trusts' Waitakere Brass sweep the silverware, winning in all areas of the Traditional and Entertainment sections of competition.

The band took home both the Hymn and Own Choice trophies in the Traditional section, with adjudicator David Gallagher making some very favourable comments about the band's performance of Sparke's 'Music For Battle Creek'.

The afternoon saw the band again being placed first in the Entertainment competition, achieving the highest marks for both the music and entertainment judging. Soprano Cornet player Fendall Hill was awarded the soloist trophy, while compere Mark Haines took home the Best Compere award.

Waitakere Brass are now looking forward to performing for a new audience at the FABB contest in Coolangatta this weekend , with a specially written program which is sure to raise a few eyebrows!
