On Sunday 11th February, Chris King and Nicholas Garman presented a test piece workshop for the 1st and 2nd section, accompanied by the Friary Guildford band. This was initiated by the Southern Counties Association and held at The Hawth, Crawley. A good number of delegates were most interested to hear what adjudicators particularly listen for when judging contests. Participants in the Youth Adjudication Scheme running for the first time in Stevenage this year were also present to learn how best to follow a score whilst listening to live music. It is hoped this event will run again in future years.
