MYBB Training Band
Newcastle under Lyme Festival for Music, Speech and Drama
16th March 2013
Very smart and disciplined
You achieve a very appropriate “Lento” at the outset in the full band – nicely contrasted with the solo instruments at letter A.
Good use of the glockenspiel and timpani – very effective close.
La Donna e Mobile (Verdi)
You get a good feel for this piece – good use of the drum kit. You don’t overblow the louder dynamics and you play well together as a band.
Bad Hair Day (Alan Fernie)
You play this piece very successfully and achieve a good feel, balance between instruments is positive and you entertain us. Keep up the good work. Well done.
Nice to have percussion!
