Festival of Brass – Queens University

Fantastic day (9 hours & 16 Bands) of Brass Band Entertainment in the Whitla Hall Queens University, great atmosphere, great performances and good result for Warrenpoint Silver.

Downshire Brass won the Championship Section and Best March and their youth band won the Best March and the most entertaining band in the youth section.

Warrenpoint were awarded second place from Dungannon who have won this section for the last four years but Rodney McCabe took the honours as best soloist with his rendition of Adagio from Concierto de Aranjuez or Orange Juice as it is called in the film Brassed Off.

Our programme was March Blaze Away, Flugelhorn Solo Adagio fron Conceirto de Aranjuez, The Pirates of the Caribbean, Irish Tune from County Derry, and Crazy little thing called Love.
