Adjudicating Siddis Brass and the Swedish National Brassband Championships

October 4th  I went to Stanvanger to adjudicate Siddis Brass.

Teaming up with Frank Renton we adjudicated the 1st division.

It was impressive to see the event took place in 3 good concert halls at the same time, all close to eachother.

Eikanger  performed a stunning galaconcert featuring some great soloists !

October 10-12 I went to Varnamo Sweden to adjudicate the Swedish National Brassband Championships.

Together with Arfon Owen, Kevin Houben and Steve Legg and Jappie Dijkstra I adjudicated several sections. The youth event Minibrass was a real eye opener, the youth is so well integrated in the weekend !
