    Due to work I will be moving to the Worcester area as of 1st April 07 for 6 months (minimum).

    I'm currently playing 3rd cornet with the lovely EYMS band in Hull (and will be sorry to leave) but will be looking for an equally sociable band in the Midlands area should anyone know of any cornet seats going free?

    You could try Stourport Band, based in the nearby town of the same name, which is about 20 mins drive from Worcester. Currently 1st section, I think they may have a cornet vacancy.

    West Mercia 2nd section are looking for cornet and would welcome you. They practice in Worcester and pay expenses for jobs and rehearsals. I'm sure gingermaestro on here will give you more details. They practice on a Monday.

    Hi Katherine

    If you want to play with a hard working dedicated group of musicians visit West Mercia Constabulary Band - 2nd section. They rehearse Mondays 7.30-10.00 at Police HQ Hindlip just outiside Worcester. Expenses paid for rehearsals and concerts. No rehearsals or park jobs in August and only good quality engagements undertaken during the rest of the year.

    Give me call if you want to chat about coming along.

    Hi Katherine,

    You are very welcome to come over to Coventry for a blow with us at Jaguar. We will have a back row vacancy after the Area contest.

    Hi Katherine

    As "drummerboy" mentioned in his post (his brother Dave Morgan is our MD)....We would pleased to have you come along and "try us for size" at Stourport!

    We are 1st Section and can probably look at suitable positions in the cornets for you.

    Stourport is about 20 mins drive from Worcester and several of us do drive from the Worcester area to band so transport shouldn't be a problem

    Have a look at our website and pm me should you want to come along.

    Sovereign Brass will have a back row vacancy after the Area too. We have at least 3 players already travelling from Worcester as our rehearsal room is off jct 1 of the M5. We have the Grand Shield in May if you're interested.

    PM me if you want to come for a blow as we are usually a cornet light on Wednesday's.

    Hi all,

    Just to say thanks very much for the flurry of responses. Unfortunately, I've just found out there is a slight chance ie 5% (!) that I may not be moving to Worcester, so I'll wait until I've had it confirmed before contacting you all directly if that's ok.

    Thanks again, speak soon.
