2014 A-Grade state champions

Perth Concert Band are Western Australia’s champion A-Grade concert band for 2014, as a result of our success at the WA Band Association state championships in Bunbury.  This follows months of detailed work on the extremely challenging A-Grade test piece.  Even the adjudicator commented on the level of difficulty.

We last won the state A-Grade in 2011.  This year we improved on our 2011 efforts by also making a very commendable effort in the contest’s “Entertainment” category.  With ponchos, false moustaches, sombreros, maracas, and trumpeters jumping in unison, we delivered our best high-energy rendition of Tequila!  Even the tuba itself wore a sombrero.  The audience lapped it all up and joined in the cries of “Tequila!”.

The evening was finished with a group celebration at one of Bunbury’s pubs.  Photos can be found on the Gallery page.
