Enfield Brass preparing for National Championships

Enfield Brass have been hard at work preparing for the 2011 Australian National Band Championships, which are to be held at the University of Adelaide’s Elder Conservatorium this Easter. The band will compete in the Open C-grade Brass section on Friday 22 and Saturday 23 April, on stage (in the Masonic Lodge) and on the street (East Terrace / Rundle Street).

Musical Director Mark Smith has selected a challenging, but exciting program to compliment the set test, Kenneth Downie’s Purcell Variations, whilst Drum Major Phil Benger has been taking the band through rigorous drill exercises.

We will be presenting a joint concert with A-grade band K&N Spring Gully Brass on the evening of Tuesday 19 April at the Goodwood Institute (formerly Mayfair) Theatre. Commencing at 7:30pm, each band will perform for an hour, presenting its contest program.
