Regionals Preview Evening, 15.02.20

This was our first official concert since being newly promoted to the 1st Section.  The band really enjoyed themselves at the Area Preview evening hosted by the TCTC Group Band at Ruskin Community High School in Crewe. Many thanks for giving us the opportunity to run our test piece out! Great to hear TCTC Group Band, Crewe Brass, Rode Hall Silver Band and Trentham Brass Band.
