At the state ensemble championships help on Saturday Yuki Takahashi Braybrook and Toni Doyle, members of Tamborine Bay Winds and the Cameraygal Wind Symphony, competed in the Open Duet section representing our organisation.
With 2 scratchings from the section, the field was narrowed down to just 2 entries – Our Yuki and Toni and a brass duo from the City of Holroyd Band.
The standard of performance was incredibly high – the best musicians in the state competing for highly regarded placings. To give an idea of what they were up against – the other competitors in their section had both won their individual solo section and were into the “Champion of Champions” section – both incredible brass players in their own right.
The end result was incredibly close and very high – our duo scored an amazing 90 points, just 2 points behind Holroyd – a very well-deserved 2nd place!
Well done Yuki and Toni, we’re VERY proud of you!!
Two members of Tambourine Bay Winds are entering the NSW State ensemble championships this coming Saturday.
Yuki Takahashi Braybrook (flute) and Toni Doyle (clarinet) will be representing TBW and the LCCB in the Open Duet section.
They will perform the 2nd & 3rd movements Larghetto & Rondo of Duet no. 1 from Three Duets (originally composed for clarinet and bassoon).
Wish them luck!
