Over the weekend the band took part in the 2018 Manx Music Festival – http://www.manxmusicfestival.org/
On the Saturday the junior Ensemble class DTB Youth Band came 2nd with Does your mother know!
Pictured above the group took part in the Brass Ensemble Open Class with Someone to Watch over me finishing 3rd!
Emily (Right 2nd row in picture above) also took part in the Adult Solo Class scoring a very respectable 85 in a very tough class!
Then on the Sunday it was the bands turn. We were entered into all classes.
First up it was the Test Piece Class where the band played Paul Lovatt-Cooper’s Fire in The Blood and came 2nd.
Then it was onto the March and Hymn Tune Class followed by the Entertainments Class, for the Entertainments Class the band bought the bond theme with them from their Shaken, Not Stirred concert the weekend before and this went down a treat with the audience who loved it.
We were really pleased with all of our results for the evening these can be seen below:
