HORNS filled the hall of a Cosham church as part of the Portsmouth Music Festival.
Dozens of musicians took part in the brass section of the festival, held at the Cosham Baptist Church.
Festival chairwoman Gwenda Dearsley said the brass section was open to musicians of all ages, as long as they knew their way around a trumpet, trombone, tuba or French horn.
She said: ‘The whole thing went extremely well.
‘The musicians reached the usual high standard and they really impressed the adjudicators.’
Ms Dearsley said the competition had been a fixture on Portsmouth’s musical calendar since 1917.
As well as brass, there were also sections for dance, guitar, piano, rock and pop, speech and drama, and more.
A final gala concert will be at the Kings Theatre in Southsea on Sunday, March 30.
