Bendigo Eisteddfod HSYB and HSJB Results

It was a very early start for the members of the Hyde Street Junior Band as they needed to be in Bendigo by 8.45am but it was all well worth it. The band sounded great and received some very good feedback from the adjudicator which will help the band improve in the future. They were also rewarded with a trophy in their Junior section.

The Youth Band also had a great day. For a start they got to sleep in a bit longer and hit the stage at 11.30 as band number 4 of 5 in the Open D Grade section of the competition. In the past the band has aimed to pip one or two other adult bands and were absolutely thrilled to win the section. Final scores were:

  • 1st place          Hyde Street Youth Band                  187 points
  • 2nd place        Eaglehawk Citizens Brass Band     185 points
  • 3rd place         Beaufort Brass                                   180 points
  • 4th place         Maryborough City Brass Band       172 points
  • 5th place         Aberfeldie Brass                                 158 points

The competition was live streamed on Brassbanned.com Brassbanned Logo which is always great for those who cannot make the drive. Thanks Tim and the team.
