NYBBS in Norway: day four

Wednesday 29 June 2016

NYBBS started day four with some marching practice.

 

AFTER a couple of days of intensive rehearsals, one could be forgiven for thinking day four of NYBBS' trip to Norway might be a bit more relaxing - but nothing could be further from the truth!

Breakfast was followed by a rather tongue-in-cheek marching practice session. Slaidburn will never be the same again...

Soon afterwards, it was back to the business of rehearsals before players were treated to a conducting masterclass by Russell Gray and Richard Evans - an experience the band's Musical Director Emeritus particularly enjoyed...

 

Karin McKenzie took part in the conducting workshop and, along with Callum Bain, took a lot from the session...

For Douglas Couchman and Leighton Griffin, the trip has been great so far...

Conducting class complete - and with one eye on the performances which are to follow over the next few days - the band ran its concert programme. Soon, it was time for tea before an evening shopping spree at a nearby retail hub.

PS: Here's the marching practice in action. WARNING: Slaidburn may have been harmed during the course of this performance...
