Big Band performing in the Alington November 2012

We were delighted to hear, at the end of the Michaelmas Term, that the Shrewsbury Big Band would be competing in the Finals of the National Concert Band Festival.

Our hopes were high after their outstanding performance in November at the regional rounds, in which they earned a Gold Award for their efforts, but we had to wait until all these rounds were complete before knowing whether or not they had got through.

The Finals take place on 13th April 2013, at the Birmingham Conservatoire.

Recordings are available of their November performances as mp3 files:
