A BRASS band has triumphed at an annual awards ceremony.

Denmead Brass came out tops at the Southern Counties Amateur Band Association’s annual quartet and ensemble competition.

The group came first in their class with their Suite for Four Trombones – even though there were only three trombones, a baritone making the fourth member of the group.

The band said they were thrilled with being awarded the title and another trophy for best interpretation out of all the 29 senior bands competing on the day.

Anna Brown, a 15-year-old bass trombone player, said ‘It was a long day but great fun with a brilliant result for us and well worth all the extra rehearsals.’

The band are no strangers to success having been awarded the title Best Trombone Section at last year’s Entertainments Contest in Crawley. The band also took first prize overall in their class at that competition.

The next big competition is on March 12 in Torquay, Devon.
