Hat Trick!

Last week we once again took part in the competition for the Shorten Cup, which is part of the Norwich Music Festival. The competition is endorsed by the Shorten family to try and encourage young children to take up music, and is specifically for chamber ensembles under the age of 18.
This year there were three groups in the competition, a guitar trio, a wind quintet and ourselves. Entrants are given a 15 minute slot in which to perfrom their strongest peices in front of a specialist judge and audience.
All three groups performed to the highest standards demonstarting thier talent, skill and agillity on thier instruments. However after some deliberation the judge announced The Saxophonics to be awarded first place.
2006 will be the last year we'll be entering this competition as next year we're all over the age limit and off to university, so it was good to go out on a high!
Pictures from the event will follow soon!

    Thanks, a few people have mentioned that we got a plug on North Norfolk radio. By the way, who are you 'anonymous'?
