STOP PRESS: Due to family commitments, with much regret, John Cushing will not be able to adjudicate for us in the woodwind and brass section this year. (We hope he can join us next year). The excellent news is that Malcolm Green has agreed to step into the breach and adjudicate the section for us. Malcolm is a renowned soloist, teacher and adjudicator and we look forward to seeing him in June. His biography can be found in the syllabus section.
