Successful Test Piece Workshop

Successful Test Piece Workshop

A capacity audience descended upon the Brighouse Community Centre on Sunday (14th February) to participate in the AoBBA’s Regionals Test Piece Workshop. Adjudicators Nick Garman, David Hirst and John Roberts delivered detailed analyses of the lower section pieces ‘The Mermaid of Zennor’, ‘The Cambrian Suite’ and ‘The Journal of Phileas Fogg’ with the aid of Simone Rebello who dealt specifically with the finer points of the percussion writing.

Delegates travelled from various parts of the region and one delegate made the journey all the way from Bournemouth.
