    players required for new band (all sections) north west

    Edit: please check latest posts for current vacancies, rehearsal venue and contact details

    The blackburn and darwen band are excited to announce the formation of a 'new' band.

    The new band started its first rehearsal last Thurs (11/01/07) and we had a very good turnout but still require a few more players.

    As this new band will bridge the gap between our Junior band and Championship section band applicants can be of all standards - but looking to progress.

    We are currently rehearsing every Thursdays from 8pm-9.30pm at our bandroom in Darwen which is just a mile up the road from junction 4 of the M65.

    We will be auditioning potential Md's within the next few weeks, so if you fancy getting involved in this exciting venture come down for a blow and I can guarentee a friendly welcome.

    For more information please contact Mandy either by PM on here, or mandypickles@btinternet.com, or give me a call on 01282 842992.

    Hey, I'm moving to Preston in May, this sounds like the perfect band for me. Looking for any tenor horn players?

    Hi Cat, yes we are still short of a tenor horn player, eb/Bb bass, sop and a front row cornet player and it would be nice to have another perc player.

    We have our last audition for a MD this Thursday and should hopefully be able to announce the successful applicant in the next couple of weeks and hopefully another announcment to follow that with a name for our 'new band.'

    Any further questions please don't hesitate to get in touch.

    Are you thinking of contesting or is it a concert band
  12. Cornet Nev.

    Cornet Nev. Member

    hj&jt, we intend doing both, but more emphasis on concert for now. However we will be starting practice soon on a contest piece for later in the year. After all it is still a new band, we do have some very experienced players, but also some fairly new, who although are up to the standard we require, need to settle in.
    If you can,come over and join us.

    Hi again, sopranoplayer!

    I'm finally in Lancashire, so wondered if there was still an opening for a horn player?

    If you could email me that'd be great.

    Thanks! Catherine xx

    We are however still looking for more permanent players to join us, especially Bass of any persuasion including Bass trombone, and at least one more hopefully versatile cornet player.
    If any one has missed the contest thread, we are now full for that slot, so thanks any way and to those who replied.
