A popular band have been feted for their musicianship, after Olney Brass were awarded first place at the Milton Keynes Own Choice Contest.
The local brass band, who play regularly at fetes, fayres and Christmas events, are made up of players living in and around north Milton Keynes. They were complemented by the adjudicators on their ability to play quietly and in tune during their performance of Dimensions by Philip Graham, while conductor Guy Bennett was also praised for his direction.
Over the Christmas period Olney Brass will be carolling around Olney and Newport Pagnell, with the annual Christmas Concert in St Peter and St Paul Church, Olney, on December 6.
