As I can't edit my original post in this category any more, here's a fresh thread. Dave Taylor 01865 717765 Brass instruments played to a suitable standard in decreasing order of proficiency: Bass trombone Euphonium Tenor trombone Bass trumpet Baritone Eb bass Alto trombone Contrabass trombone BBb Bass Eb Horn I'm happy to dep for any band of any section (and also any other musical group) around here on any of these, though do note that it is much more handy if there is also a spare seat for my girlfriend, who also plays most of the above to a similar standard. No notice required, but our 'free' time does tend to be pretty busy a month or more in advance. We currently play for Kidlington Concert Brass, a championship section band near Oxford on, respectively, bass trombone and euphonium. We have our own transport, and expenses are appreciated, though not entirely necessary. However, gigs that are far away and/or unattractive for other reasons we may ask for a fee for. Ensembles I have played for include (in alphabetical order!) - (by no means an exhaustive list, these are to give an idea of spread of location and quality) Bands: Aldbourne, Chinnor, Hungerford, Jaguar (Coventry), Jubilee Brass, Kidlington, Longridge, Shipston, Sovereign, Swindon Pegasus, University of Warwick, Wantage, Winchcombe Orchestras: Covent Garden Chamber Orchestra, Imperial College Symphony Orchestra, Kensington Philharmonic Orchestra, Kensington Symphony Orchestra, Newbury Symphony Orchestra, Oxford Sinfonia, Oxford Symphony Orchestra, Oxford University Orchestra, Oxford University Sinfonietta, Rehearsal Orchestra, Salomon Orchestra, Swindon Symphony Orchestra, University of Warwick Symphony Orchestra Small groups: Various quintets, 10tets, trombone quartets, etc. Early music.
