SCABA Entertainments Contest, Crawley 0n 16th May 2010 Section A

Chris Davis OBE, agreed to take the band to the contest at short notice. Chris performed nothing short of a miracle, by putting together a fantastic programme in just 5 weeks with the band. We worked hard & the band felt confident when we took the stage. Our programme consisted of Gaudete, The Boy from Menaem, Cute, Mid all the Traffic & we finished with Signature. Our principal solo cornet Iona again did us proud, with Chris’s own arrangement of “Through the Eyes of Love”, which the adjudicator really appreciated. We were awarded 3rd place, a proud moment for the band, particularly as we beat some championship bands along the way. The band would like to extend its grateful thanks to Chris for all his hard work.
