For the second consecutive year, Liberty were delighted to host the British Youth Band Association’s Individual and Ensembles Competition. This time we moved to a new venue – Northampton High School whose facilities include a really impressive auditorium that gave all of the performers a terrific performance space.
Most of Liberty’s members took part in one of the classes and we were really thrilled with all of their performances. A number of them did so well that they medalled in their class so a big congratulations to:
Amelia Butler - Gold Medal 14 and under Brass
Cameron Turner - Silver Medal 14 and under Brass
Elliott Barnes-Ward - Bronze Medal 18 and under Brass
Jed Quinlan - Bronze Medal 14 and under Drums
Tyler Middleton - Gold Medal 14 and under Drums
Liberty Brass - Gold Medal Youth Brass
Liberty Junior Band - Silver Medal Mixed Ensembles
R Ao and L Walton - Silver Medal 18 and under Colourguard Duo
E Barnes Ward/ E Willis - Gold Medal 18 and under Brass Duo
It was clear that although we have just said goodbye to a number of older members, there is a great deal of talent just waiting to step into their shoes. The future is looking bright for Liberty 2019!
