3rd Section

ORDER OF PLAY         13

POINTS                      180

PLACING                    2nd

A fairly convincing opening.(1) Tam sings and nice contrasts in animato.

(3) Well judged. Con Moto needs a touch more warmth but safe just add a little shape.

Nice lead into ride home which has safe control. Listesso Tempo has clear detail and mainly secure through to Andante.

Slight bass intonation to open (7). Nice balance hear with warmth & expression. Dance has control and clear detail and good Soprano.

(9) You enjoy and you keep tight rhythmic control. Good change at [cut common] time and the excitement grows with conviction.

Chase: slight euph strain to open but you provide atmosphere & good balanced band sounds noted with good bass runs.

Little loose into (16) & slight bass intonation. Likewise into (17). The ride home has control.

Poco lento safe with dynamic contrasts. (18) An emphatic statement to close.

A good overall performance displaying good control from conductor and all band contributes.

Thank You
Mal Brownbill
