I should apologies first for this posting coming so very, very late. I’ve had difficulties posting to this site from my phone and it appears I was posting to the wrong one all along (doh!). – Mike
Anyhoo, where do I begin? Well there was the post to say we were heading up to Glasgow for the BMG Festival 2016 at Kelvinside Academy. Most of us journeyed up by train in cheery spirits ready for some grim Scottish weather – which never happened. It seems Glasgow in March is like a sauna. Result.
As an orchestra we were performing in the competition but so were many of our members as solos, duels and groups. Not much time and space to watch each other but a very exciting time shuttling between classrooms with music, stands and stringed instruments to perform under pressure.
Though the orchestra didn’t manage to win we got plenty of high recommendations and silverware for individuals.
10/10 to the organisers as everything ran like clockwork with amazing classes, top food, beautiful weather, gorgeous (and very posh) Kelvinside and stunning entertainment.
