Following an unbelievable amount of preperation and rehearsal, our performance of Gilbert Vinter’s “Triumphant Rhapsody” on Sunday we thought was brilliant.
However, being placed 10th, the band cannot help feeling disappointed, if not robbed. The predictions by 4barsrest.com had the band as 2nd, and there were many positive comments by members of the audience about our playing.
Brass band contest results are, in the end, the opinion of the adjudicators, and it seems that the incredible power of Point of Ayr Band was disliked by Messers. Roe and Horsefield.
The only comment made by Mr. Roe before the announcement of results was that loud playing is a “disease coming into brass banding”, and that a fortissimo marking doesn’t mean the paint needs to be stripped off the walls.
However, Point of Ayr will continue to play as it always has, with it’s own bold and distinctive style, and we look forward to the championship section Welsh regionals in March 2010.
THERE ARE STILL SOME UNIFORMS MISSING! ANYBODY WITH ONE OF THE UNIFORMS WHO IS NOT CURRENTLY WITH THE BAND PLEASE CALL SUE ON 07886 510878
It seems that since the renaisscance of Point of Ayr band in 2007, and despite the unbelievable rapid progress through the ranks that they have acheived, a major part of the band was missing. The Uniforms. At the closure of the band, uniforms were borrowed by other bands, making it a difficult job for them to be caught up with and reunited back in Ffynnongroyw. However, thanks to the hard work of certain band members, it is now a reality.
After a lot of searching, many telephone calls, and a trip by John Hinckley to Edinburgh, our uniforms are now back where they belong in the band room. With blue sleeves and collars, gold rope trim and brass buttons, they are enough to make even the tattiest band member look the very meaning of smartness.
Welcome to the new website of Point of Ayr Collery band. After much suspense and patience, the website is now up and running. We look forward to updating the site on a regular basis, and to keep you informed of the band’s rapid progress.
