Report & Results: 2016 Ripon Cathedral Entertainment

Tewit Youth produce brilliant entertainment to claim the silverware ahead of senior rivals at Ripon Cathedral.

Ripon Entertainment
 

There was plenty of wonderful entertainment on show amid the glorious surroundings of Ripon Cathedral in Yorkshire on the weekend, as both youth and senior bands produced excellent performances for an appreciative audience as well as the adjudication team of Mike Kilroy, Malcolm Dibb and Ben Cauldwell.

Overall honours

After a splendid day of music making it was Tewit Youth Band (above) that left for home with the huge winner's Rose Bowl trophy to fill with celebratory lemonade, as they took the overall honours under the direction of their energetic MD, Martin Hall.

In what was a cracking contest, the young players beat off the strong challenge of Third Section rivals North Skelton and Eagley to take the overall honours.

Tewit's 'Best Entertainment' prize-winning set certainly wowed the audience, who were left cheering along as they delivered their 'Hootenanny, Down by the Riverside' finale, with all the players standing on their feet and the MD racing down the aisle in time for the last chord!

The band's solo horn player Nat Martin also won the 'Best Soloist' award for his fine rendition of 'And Everything is Still'.

20 minute programme

The popular event has been going since 1997, with bands having to produce a 20 minute programme. Once again this year there was a fine selection of music on offer with numerous excellent soloists and a wide variety of repertoire.

2013 champion North Skelton conducted by Kevin Moxon gave of their best as they ended runner-up, producing a fine rendition of 'Blaze Away' to take the 'Best March' prize, whilst third placed Eagley directed by Matt Ryan also claimed the 'Best Percussion' trophy.

Marske took the 'Best Hymn Tune' with their lyrical account of 'When the Stars Begin to Fall', whilst Neil Greenwood of Huddersfield & Ripponden claimed the 'Best Euphonium' prize for his lovely rendition of 'Donegal Bay'.
