Best result for Hemel Hempstead Band

It was an early start for the members of Hemel Hempstead Band as pre-contest practice started at 8am for the London and Southern Counties Area Contest in Stevenage.

Promoted to Third Section in 2009, the band has gone from strength to strength over the past few years and at The Arts and Leisure Centre they confirmed their position by finishing 6th, the band’s best-ever result. The test piece, Evolution, by Philip Sparke, known for its varied tempos and styles, proved challenging to all the bands taking part, but the two adjudicators had many positive comments for the players from Hemel Hempstead.
