    My daughter is off to university in September to study Spanish either in Leeds or Sheffield (depends on results). She's a player of a good standard; most recently she's played front row and flugel with a 1st section band. Complete with her own instruments. Any vacancies that you know of?

    Deepcar band, just on the edge on Sheffield (although most of us live in Sheffield and can arrange lifts) are looking for a new principal cornet player. We are a 4th section band, but have well attended rehearsals, a good bandroom atmosphere and plenty of ambition.

    I would hope that in a 4th section principal cornet position she could still be tested and have the chance to push herself through solo parts etc, but may not have the pressures that sometimes comes with higher level banding when she needs to concentrate on important coursework.

    We have a few jobs over the summer if you wanted to come along and hear us, and of course you are always welcome to come along to any of our rehearsals for either a listen or a blow.

    Please get in touch if you are interested, or for details of our jobs and rehearsals, you can PM me, or call me on 07767808409.

    Thanks, and good luck whatever she decides to do.

    Thank you all for your responses. She now has a list as long as her arm of bands to try for. How very exciting! She's going to be a away over the summer, so it may be some time before she gets in contact with you.

    Thanks again :clap:

    Drighlington Band (Currently Championship, 1st Section in 2012) would give her a warm welcome if she comes to Leeds. We have had an excellent relationship with Leeds University students over the years (our Secretary and Treasurer are both former Leeds students who have stayed on after studies in recent years).

    We are based just outside Morley (South Leeds) at BD11 1LQ under the leadership of Musical Director Jim Davies (former principal of Cory's and Brighouse).

    Drop me a line for more details if she is interested.
