The 2002 4BarsRest awards:
Just before you all pack away your instruments (a
la Blue Peter tortoise) for their traditional winter hibernation
the time has come again for the ever so traditional 4BR Awards.
OK – we know everyone else has awards ceremonies, and ours
are only traditional because we did them last year for the first
time, but we think they hold a special place on all your hearts.
Either that or it gives you a good opportunity to laugh at our nominations
and for yourselves to take the chance of voting for who you think
should pick up a gong or two for Xmas.
We have a number of categories for you to vote on and we have given
five nominations that we think deserve to be taken into consideration.
You don’t of course need to agree with us (who ever does eh?)
but it should give you some idea of the calibre of contenders for
the top prizes.
We will this year make sure that the winners actually get something
from us to put on the mantelpiece or in the trophy cabinet in the
bandroom – so get the acceptance speeches ready.
The awards come in the following
• Band of the Year
• Player of the Year
• Conductor of the Year
• CD of the Year
• Lower Section Band of the Year
• Newcomer of the Year
• Test Piece of the Year
• Contest Performance of the Year
