Co-operative Funeralcare to lead test piece workshop

With the Scottish Championships fast approaching, the Co-operative Funeralcare Band announces a test piece workshop to give competing bands the opportunity to perform to an interested audience of fellow bandspeople. In addition to getting some practice in front of a live audience, the bands will be put through their paces by adjudicator Nigel Boddice MBE, who'll be offering his thoughts on the performances. 


'There's no substitute for performing in front of an audience', said bang manager Martin Stack. 'This is a great opportunity for the bands involved to feel what it's like to play their respective test pieces with a little adrenaline thrown into the equation, which can change everything on the contest stage'. 


Experienced adjudicator Nigel Boddice will also be on hand to give his opinions of all the bands' performances. Nigel has adjudicated at many prestigious contests, including the British Open and the European Championships. 


Anyone is welcome to attend what ought to be a thrilling evening of music-making with the following bands:


The Co-operative Funeralcare Band (Championship Section)

The Bathgate Band (1st Section)

Essay by Edward Gregson


Irvine & Dreghorn Band (2nd Section)
