AREAS 2015
A long day at the areas yesterday and although we didn't get the placing we were after, a strong performance by all to be proud of.

Some positive reviews from 4barsrest....
Draw 3 - Wellington (Telford) - Fiona Rolph.
"With M.D already up on the podium, Wellington make a clean start to stake their claim. The band can really show a good range in dynamics, with lovely quiet passages. It does feel a little on the slow side throughout though. The band built well into the final movement and Glock seems to really enjoy himself here! Another strong attempt but perhaps a little too slow for us."
