After promotion in January to the second section the band competed in the area contest at St Georges Hall, Bradford on Saturday 5th March.
After an early draw of number 2 the band took to the stage to perform Eric Ball’s Resurgam. We were all pleased with our performance and hoped we would do well in the results. We were delighted to learn that we had been given 6 place out of 12 competitors, a good result for the first time in a higher section.
Congratulations to South Yorkshire Police and Barnsley Chronicle Band who have qualified for the finals in September.
The B Band also took to the stage from a number 1 draw to play John Golland’s Prelude, Song and Dance, they played well and improved on their position from last years 11 out of 12 to 9 out of 12.
Again congratulations to Dinnington and Dronfield.
