The town band continued their preparations for the Scottish Championships in March with a workshop on Saturday.
Two members of top Scottish band the Whitburn Band returned for a second year to work with the band on this years test piece. Endurance tells the story of Ernest Shackletons expedition to the South Pole in 1914, and is an exciting piece full of emotion and tension depicting portions of the epic adventure. Chris Bradley principle cornet and Scott Kerr principle euphonium took their respective sections for a series of workshops. Their aim is to guide the band both collectively and individually to deliver a better interpretation of the piece. Through their experience of playing at the highest level it provides a valuable insight for the band and is an opportunity to learn from some of the best players in the country.
