Liberty held its 7th Annual Review Night on November 20th to celebrate all that was achieved in our 2015 season.
Throughout the evening the packed room of parents and friends saw montage videos of all the events the band attended throughout the year….from local school fetes through to days in a recording studio …and were also entertained by solo performances that the members will be taking to the BYBA Individuals and Ensembles competition next weekend.
The corps watched the video of their performance on the field for the first time at the evening DCUK Open Class Finals before performing the 2015 show “Together” for the last time.
We finally had the opportunity to recognise the commitment and loyalty of our 2 age-outs, Dan and Adam, who had both been at our very first rehearsal in 2008 and were now leaving the corps having reached the age of 21.
Our awards recognised those members whose commitment and contribution had really made them stand out this year. Coincidentally they were all young people who pretty much learned from scratch at Liberty and are now, as 15 and 16 year olds, emerging as the next generation of young leaders in the corps. It looks like Liberty has a bright future!
Overall Band Member of the Year for 2015 was Kyle Walsh who completed his first season in 2015 on snare having previously been on bass drum.
