Band News - September 2004
WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS!
After our 2nd place success at the regionals in March we were just happy to be taking part in the National Finals let alone win them.
Again with a combined band from Potters Bar Town and Whitewebbs Motor Museum we set to work over the summer rehearsing Philip Sparke's “Four Noble Truths” but with holidays and our MD away working this was no easy task.
Through sheer hard work and a lot of late nights we pulled it into shape and boarded the coach to Harrogate knowing that we could play the piece — but were we good enough to rank amongst the best of the 4th section bands in the country?
After playing 12th in a field of 21 bands the bar became a good base to await the competition's end. Then to the results, which is actually worse on the nerves than playing. No one could have been more shocked than us when we were announced the Winners!!
