The 2015 Victorian State Solo and Ensemble Championships were once again held at Our Lady of Mercy College on 25-26 July, and many of Footscray’s finest competed again this year.
Nearly all the open sections contained a Footscray player in them, with up to 5 Scraggers in some sections!! All performed to an excellent standard with many placing 1st or 2nd in their sections, which meant we won the Open Aggregate Trophy for the second year in a row!!!
Open Slow/Sacred Melody – Alison Teece 1st place.
Open Bb Cornet – Jamie Lawson 1st place, Brenton Burley 2nd place.
Open Trumpet – Marcus McLaughlin 1st place, Madeline Anderson 2nd place.
Open Flugel – Marcus McLaughlin 1st place.
Open Baritone – Kathryn Cooper 1st place.
Open Euphonium – Andrew Heading 1st place.
Open Trombone – Emily Furlong 2nd place.
Open High Tuba – Emily Hansen 3rd place.
Open Low Tuba – Iain Fisher 1st place, Emily Hanson 2nd place.
Open Quartet – Scraggers Tubas 1st place, Scraggers Trumpets 3rd place.
A big congratulations to all who competed!!!
We hope to see FYCB represented by even more players next year!
