The Yorkshire Imperial Band gave their first performance of Peter Graham’s “The Torchbearer” at Brass at the Guild Contest (Preston) in preparation for the Yorkshire area in March. The band achieved a very well deserved third place and secured their reputation as the best Yorkshire band in attendance, with new members/new soloists of the band rising to the challenge. Additional to the bands success at Preston, Principal Euphonium player Adrian Nurney took away the prize for best euphonium following his ballsy top Eb which lasted all of ten seconds.

Imps will be attending a test-piece preview concert before the area along with Hade Edge, Dinnington, Garforth and Tingley who will all be performing their set test piece and a hymn tune/march of their choice. This will be held on the 1st March at St. Paul’s Hall at the University of Huddersfield, with doors opening at 7.00pm for a 7.30 start (free entry). With two performances of the Torchbearer in the bag, Imps hope to put on a first-class performance for the Yorkshire Area in March.
