National Band Comp 10'

This is also an rusty old post that I didn't manage to upload earlier on.

July 15th, is national band competition! This year it is organized by MWBC, not really under government, so each state can have any numbers of band joining in the nationals as long as they are in the top10 list in the whole nation. My school band was in the list but due to some problems they didn't join nationals. Same goes to St Joseph Miri. Awwww am so sad about it!

Here are the ones which joined (I cant remember so I copied it somewhere =P):

1st place - SMK St. John's Institution, Kuala Lumpur - 79.30 points
2nd place - SMJK Keat Hwa, Kedah - 72.20 points
3rd place - SMK Saint Joseph Kuching, Sarawak - 71.70 points
4th place - SMJK Chung Hwa Wei Sin, Terengganu - 69.30 points
5th place - SMJK Nan Hwa, Perak - 66.80 points
7th place - SMK Tun Fatimah, Johor - 61.6 points
8th place - SMJK Kwang Hua, Selangor - 61.20 points
9th place - Kolej Sultan Abdul Hamid, Kedah - 60.40 points
11th place - SMK High School Klang, Selangor - 59.10 points
13th place - SMJK Chung Hwa, Kelantan - 57.20 points

Okay.. The bands this year are superb! Lots of improvement and surprised. It's a wonder how Malaysia bands improved so much in just this few years! I can still remember when I just joined band, most bands don't really have good music and clean drills. Now, many bands are like sound like concert symphonic band, but they march and run in the formation x) Love it love it!

Hmm I don't think I'll post pictures of every single bands. Not like the pictures are nicely taken or what. You can just see the pin dot like colours in shape xD

Love CHWS's music. It's so clean, so harmony, so powerful! Love Keat Hwa's drill, it's so flawless and clean! Love Nan Hwa's show, it really grabs the audience's heart and I felt like crying watching it! SJSK's concerto theme is a nice try thought. And I love their pit percussion and colour guards. The pits played their music with such a passion and power while the colour guards are so nice =)

Enough of my continual blabering, we'll see the results.

Not exactly the best result, but oh well if you're in Malaysia's marching band industry long enough you'll know that the results always come out with some complaints. Respect the judges then. Don't wanna say anything already since it happened ages before xD
