Report & Results: 2021 Kapitol Cory Online Championships

Auszug aus der Veröffentlichung der Ergebnisse der 2021 Kapitol Cory Online Championship, hier speziell die 2nd Section:

The worldwide popularity of the contest was certainly seen in the Second Section where a fantastic trio of European bands took the podium honours.

Lakeland Brass from Switzerland certainly provided a startling example of polished playing and production values. Their winning programme encapsulated trips to the Stravinski Auditorium in Montreux all the way to Heaven and Hell via a sparkling ‚Czardas‘ violin and euphonium duet, a traditional alp horn soloist (not forgetting their ‚Best Trombones‘) and even a touch of AC/DC rock.

Fjell Brass from Norway (who won the awards for ‚Best Horns‘ and Yamaha ‚Best Percussion‘ — and perhaps the ‚Best use of Chickens‘ and skiing cornet player if there were ones) came runner-up, whilst Brass Band B10 from Germany was third with their engaging ‚Windows of the World‘ production.

Well put together sets from Lochgelly (which featured a super ‚Best Soloist‘ winner in Lynsey ‚Whirlwind‘ Aitken), Bearpark & Esh and Brass Band Hinualt ended in the top six, whilst Ifton Colliery took the ‚Most Entertaining Award‘ with a colourful set that even featured tuba playing werewolf!
