NYBBS in Norway: day two

Monday 27 June 2016

Richard Evans leading a sectional with euphonium and baritone players.


DAY two was full steam ahead!

After breakfast, it was straight into sectional rehearsals under the guidance of Russell Gray, Richard Evans, John Boax and Eirik Gjerdevik.

Members have settled well into their surroundings at Åsane Folkehøgskole, with comfortable rooms (and good food!) Even the weather is helping band members feel right at home...

Duncan McCluskie and principal cornet Rebecca Wilson, both experienced NYBBS members, offered their thoughts on the course so far...

The rest of the day was split between sectional and full band rehearsals, with Russell Gray and Richard Evans guiding players through their concert programme.

By the end of the day, members were ready to relax - and what better way than with a packed quiz, hosted by house staff member Alison Hall.

It all made everything worthwhile for SBBA education officer, John Boax, who discussed his delight at seeing a plan come together...
