On Sunday 25 October, Amersham Community Brass took to the stage for its very first contest – with trombone player Anisha Khilji walking away with the best soloist trophy. The band had been invited to take part in the Addlestone Challenging Brass event which is a friendly competition between four local bands. The band played an entertainment programme based on a theme of holidays, with pieces from around the world such as Waltzing Matilda, African Funk and O Sole Mio, featuring ┬áthe winning solo by Anisha. The band also played the set piece march “Viscount Nelson”. ACB Musical Director, Mary Wells said “Everyone worked really hard to prepare the programme and I am delighted with our performance. We made a great impression at our contest debut, even though we were up against much more experienced contesting bands. We should all be very proud of what we have achieved”.
