The Corner Brook Regional High Wind Symphony in New York.
A true sign of any great performer is being able to rise to the challenge, no matter how big the stage.
Well there’s not much bigger stage for a band or orchestra than Carnegie Hall in New York. So, to have their “performance of the year” at the 2014 National Band and Orchestra Festival, the Corner Brook Regional High Wind Symphony proved their worth once again.
Band master Darren White called Monday’s performance the best by his symphony this year. It was the culmination of a long year of hard work and practice, but also the addition of some advice recieved through workshops in New York the day before.
White said the clinicians and adjudicators provided very favourable and positive feedback to the band.
