Slow Melody Contest sees LYB members in the prizes!



Five members of Lions Youth Brass headed to Oldham on Sunday 26th June to take part in the Colne Valley Slow Melody Contest in what turned out to be quite a day for them. 

To kick things off, young euphonium star Jamie Reid (left) won the Under 16 solo section with tenor horn player Abbie Webb (far right) finishing a praiseworthy sixth. 

In addition, the organisation entered the quartet section with (from second left to right) Emily Gibson (cornet), Daya Gill (euphonium), Tasha Brett (cornet) and Abbie Webb (horn). Come results time they were delighted to discover that they had been placed in first place with a quite wonderful score of 96/100!

It's quite a collection of trophies and medals that have made their way back to South Cheshire. Well done to you all - everyone at LYB is incredibly proud of you!
