North Ayrshire School Bands Win Yet More Awards
I was delighted to attend North Ayrshire School Band's performance before they attended the Scottish Concert Band Festival on Saturday last in Perth. The evening before the competition we were treated a musical feast by the Band in Kilwinning High School. I was privileged to say a few words of thanks and good luck to all the talented musicians, their dedicated music teachers and mums, dads, grandparents etc who supported them on their musical journey.
Not surprisingly, on the day of the Music Festival itself, after a very early start for the journey to Perth, yet more accolades were heaped upon North Ayrshire's wonderful musicians, with the Intermediate Band picking up a Gold Award, and the Junior Band picking up a Silver Award.
I have followed the progress of these young musicians over several years. Every time I hear them, they get better and better! They do the whole of North Ayrshire proud.
