Northern defend title at Latrobe Valley Eisteddfod

or the second year in a row, Northern Brass has returned victorious from the Latrobe Valley Eisteddfod. The annual competition was held in Traralgon on the 16th of September.

Northern’s attendance this year marked the first performance with new musical director, Marc Nethercot. The band presented a rather traditional program, featuring old favourites “A Moorside Suite” and “Florentine March” alongside a much newer arrangement of Nicaea by the band’s own Jared McCunnie.

The band produced an enjoyable program to secure victory in the B Grade competition. The band is hoping to continue building upon their strong performances ahead of next year’s national championships.
