LORETTO CONCERT BAND TRIUMPH IN NATIONAL FESTIVAL
10th December 2013

THE Loretto School Concert Band achieved a ‘Silver Plus’ award (the equivalent of third place) in the recent Scottish Concert Band Festival in Livingston recently (7th December). This national competition attracted over 40 of the very finest of Scotland’s youth concert bands. Loretto School also achieved a ‘first’  - as the only independent school in Scotland to enter the competition. 

Loretto's Concert Band was described by the adjudicator as "delicate, subtle playing” and “beautiful sound colours”.  

 

Mr Jamie McVicar, Deputy Director of Music at Loretto, commented, "Though not the largest Concert Band in the competition, the Loretto pupils performed magnificently and certainly punched above their weight. Indeed, one of the adjudicators commented that we 'sounded like a band with far more numbers'. We were delighted with the result and I do congratulate all the pupils involved."
