Summer Rhythm 2015

Last weekend saw Liberty host bands from across the country at the “Summer Rhythm” British Youth Band Association contest being held at Daventry Town FC in Northamptonshire.
We were delighted to welcome friends from Stafford Brigades, The Comets, Lanesfield BB/GB, Stafford Lancers, Revolution, Beeches Performance Ensemble and Phantom Knights.
Just as the contest got underway the heavens opened and saw Stafford Brigades get absolutely soaked…but their perseverance was rewarded later in the day when they we announced as Championship Class Winners.
The Premier Class was won by Beeches Performance Ensemble with their show entitled “The Sword”.
Liberty’s performance was much stronger than the previous week and saw the corps take 4th place overall with the colourguard winning their section. We were especially pleased to see our young brass line placing third.
Liberty Juniors gave the final performance of the day. This young group of 9-12 year olds played the first 2 numbers from their western themed show and were proudly led onto the field by members of the senior band who teach them.
As all the bands lined up for the retreat, hundreds of balloons were released as part of Liberty’s fund-raising balloon race.
Liberty are really grateful to the following companies who sponsored the Summer Rhythm contest: Stanair, Shire Security, Prop-Search and The Business Times.
