John Lewis, our amazing Principal Cornet player, has added another trophy to his massive collection!

The Federation of Australasian Brass Bands (FABB) runs an annual competition featuring top bands from across Australia and New Zealand, and this year’s Australasian Open was last weekend, 28-30 October 2011.

John was covering a seat for Gunnedah Shire Band (NSW) and won the Best Soloist Prize for his contribution to the band’s performance of ‘Psyche’ by Swiss composer Luso Neurohr.

Kay Mackenzie and Rhys McDonnell were also helping bands out (Rhys supporting local contenders North Shore Brass). A weekend on the Gold Coast… it’s hard being in demand!
