Visit to Valais

Last weekend I was invited  to work with Rose Alp Brassband and their condcutor David Bonvin.

The weekend was the start of their preparation of Blitz for this band, the set test piece at the Swiss nationals in the 1st division.

On the Saturday morning almost 50 younger  and some more  experienced conductors came to work on blitz, listen to tips and trick especially related to contest preparation. How do prepare a difficult score like Blitz ?

The afternoon was spent on some practical guidance of 4 young conducting students.

The galaconcert in the night was so much fun, Vincent Bearpark played some stunning solo’s as invited local star.

Valaisia is such a great place in brassbanding !
