St. Dennis Band Solo and Quartet Contest - 25th November 2023

A huge well done to everyone that took part in the annual St. Dennis Band Solo and Quartet contest on Saturday 25th November 2023. After unfortunately having to cancel the 2022 contest due to lack of entries, we were delighted to be able to host the event this year at our own band room.

It was especially wonderful to see so many youth players entering, and for many was their first solo contest. A great day was had and thank you to everyone who entered and attended to listen.

We’d like to say a huge thank you to our official piano accompanist, Miss. Hannah Hawken.

And most of all a massive thank you to our Adjudicator for the day, Mr. John Hitchens, who was so encouraging of all the players and gave great constructive and positive feedback. His words of advice and support has certainly encouraged many of our first-time entrants to start practising for the 2024 contest already!

We would like to thank all the competitors for travelling to the contest and hope to see you all again for the 2024 Solo and Quartet Contest in November.
