2010 NSW State Band Championships

Yesterday I participated in the NSW State Band Championships with the concert band I perform with: NWWE (North West Wind Ensemble).

I play mostly glockenspiel.
This is an excerpt of one of the pieces we played yesterday.
It is called "Armenian Dances".
The original recoding goes for about 19 minutes.
This video is 10 minutes long.

We won the Open A-Grade section playing Armenian Dances, Fantasy Variations, and Shenendoah. I hope you enjoy it :)


  1. Thanks so much for your interest Alio - it was a fantastic day and one of those performances where just about everything fell into place easily :)

  3. Hi Rhys, thanks so much for your comment.
    I know - they have split up the trouble-makers haven't they!
    Good to know you are also doing Web206.
    I am looking forward to reading your blog and finding out who the other members of our class divide are.
    Thanks again for your comment :)

    1. The paradiddle families and variations can be combined
      in lots of interesting ways to achieve different effects,
      whether on a single snare drum, multiple tenor drums,
      or a drum set.or a drum set.
