Royal Wootton Bassett Arts Festival
SYM win two trophies:
The SYM Ukulele group won the 1st prize for :Class G30 – Ukulele Ensemble Secondary School Age.
A great sound and vocalist. I would love to see if you could start experimenting with the strumming patterns to really give us a slightly difference twist. Excellent crescendo getting towards the end of the song which was really effective. Well played. Mark 87 Category: Distinction
The SYM Brass Ensemble won the 1st prize for: Class E2 – Ensembles Secondary School Age.
An effective opening and there was some particularly impressive work from the 2 young 1st trumpeters. The ensemble worked well here with good balance and the intonation was mostly secure and you conveyed the character of the music with some conviction.
Hall of the Mountain King
Be careful of your tuning on the 1st note! Again good ensemble work with some excellent support from the young drummer and you managed the gradual accelerando well and built well into the exciting finish. A most impressive group – well played! Mark 88 Category: Distinction
