Shorten Cup

Today we returned to defend our title in the Shorten Cup at Norwich Music Festival. We were in the chamber ensemble catagory against strong competition from Quintessence (wind quintet from Fakenham College), a string quartet (from Norwich) and a 'recorder,cello,harpsichord' trio (also from Norwich).
The competition was fierce and standards were very high, with participants being judged on their presentation, suitablity of music, musical ablility and perfomance.
After watching the other three ensembles in our catagory it was finally our turn to perform and after a nerve racking 15 minutes of playing the final desicion had been made.
We were joined on stage by all the other contestants to hear the judges final decision. After announcing the winners in reverse order it was revealed that we were going to hold the cup for another year!
3rd; Norwich Trio, 2nd; Quintessence, 1st; The Saxophonics
The Saxophonics; North Norfolks premiere sax quartet for another year. Hopefully we have as much luck next time!
