Judges revealed for Brass in Concert8-Jul-2012
Brass in Concert Championship reveals the panel of judges for new format.
The organisers of the Brass in Concert Championship have revealed the line-up of adjudicators who will implement the event’s new scoring system.
The contest takes place on Sunday 18th November at The Sage Gateshead, with the respected duo of Paul Cosh and Luc Vertommen overseeing the ‘Quality of Performance’ criteria.
Andrew Duncan, a multiple award winner at the contest over the years, and the Scottish Brass Band Association Development Manager, will judge ‘Programme Content’, whilst Steve Walker, the man behind the resurgence of the Butlins Mineworkers Championships will pass judgement on ‘Entertainment & Presentation’.
The individual Solo Award will be decided by tuba virtuoso Les Neish.
Quality of Performance will account for 60% of the marks, while Entertainment & Presentation and Programme Content will be awarded 20% each.
Event spokesperson John Woods, told 4BR: "We are delighted to be able to reveal such a high quality panel of judges. Paul Cosh and Luc Vertommen are vastly experienced musicians who will focus purely on the quality of the band’s playing.
Andrew Duncan is an ideal choice as the programme content judge, as a former multiple winner of the new composition prize, while Steve Walker’s vast experience as the Festival Director at the Butlins Mineworkers Championship makes him the perfect appointment as the entertainment judge."
