2023 State Solo & Ensemble Championships
Hyde Street Youth Band had numerous entries to this year’s VBL State Solo & Ensemble Championships, with members competing in Under 10, Juvenile, Junior and Open Age categories.
The Hyde Street Quartet known as Eeee – that’s 2 Euphoniums and 2 Eb Tuba’s, are State Junior Champions, taking out 1st place, with an incredible mark of 96! Well done Fern, Imogen, James and Fergus!
Congratulations to James on an excellent score of 92 and placing 2nd in the Juvenile Trumpet section. It was a delight to listen, so well accompanied by your Dad, and Hyde Street’s wonderful accompanist, Patrick. Well done to Tom on your amazing 2nd place in the Junior trumpet, you played with such energy and gusto with such a rich sound!
Congratulations to James, Stuart and Victoria for your amazing performances placing 2nd, 3rd and 4th respectively in the Junior Tenor Trombone section. And to Imogen for her 3rd in the Junior Bass Tuba, brilliant for one who’s been playing tuba for less than a year. Legends all of you! Congratulations to one of our talented percussionists, Will, who came 1st in the Junior Tuned Percussion with an exceptional score of 92!
