The month of March has been a busy one, with CPOF playing two major music festivals in stunning venues across Scotland.
Sunday 10th March saw Carluke return to the Glasgow Music Festival. Playing in the WInd Orchestras and Bands class, Carluke took to the stage of the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall to give their first public performance of Dvorak's Symphony No. 8 (Movement II - Adagio). The piece was specially arranged by our conductor Jon Hargreaves. This was followed by Gossec's Tambourin, arranged by John Bryce.
Two other ensembles participated in the Class - FlutesUnlimited and Flutephonics, both of Glasgow. FlutesUnlimited took first place with 88 points awarded out of 100 in what was a close-run competition. Carluke came in second with 87 points, and Flutephonics third with 86 points. Congratulations to FlutesUnlimited!
A week later on Saturday 16th March, Carluke made their second-ever journey to Perth Concert Hall to participate in the National Finals of the Scottish Concert Band Festival. The adjudicators awarded our rendition of Dvorak's 8th Symphony with a Gold Award.
Look out for a recording coming soon!
