Today Marske Brass Band competed in the annual Ripon Brass Band Contest which is held in the magnificent cathedral. The band was awarded the trophy for best hymn performance for the rendition of “When The Stars Begin To Fall”.
Special mention must go to the band’s Soprano Cornet Superstar Ceridwen Heaney who played the solo “Let me Try Again” beautifully – the sound from this exceptional player resonating throughout the hallowed cathedral. Go Ceri!
The band wishes to thank Ian Langthorne from GT Group Peterlee band for rehearsing and conducting at this contest in the absence of regular maestro Alun Prest who is taking an enforced short absence. Thank you Ian. And get well soon Alun.
