    Emley Brass band are seeking a Cornet player, a Horn player and a Bass player, Due to the a couple of our team taking a break from banding.

    Cornet - any seat is available to the right player, if you fancy a crack at being our top man please get in touch, or if you like the challenge of front or back row, it doesn't matter to us, we've a strong and well balanced cornet team who are all willing to move a little to make sure we've a full team for the 2nd section challenges ahead.

    Horn - as with the cornets, we've two good horn players who are willing to give us the flexibility to invite applications for any seat in the section, if you're looking to join on 2nd horn we can also offer the chance to progress smoothly through the section as you improve.

    Bass - at the end of the year one of our long standing players is taking a break from banding to spend a little more time at home, so we are seeking either an Eb or BBb player, and again, we have the flexibility to accommodate a player on the chair they'd prefer.

    We rehearse in our own warm comfortable bandroom in Emley (HD8), about a 20 min (or less) drive from Leeds, Sheffield, Barnsley, Huddersfield and Wakefield.
    Emley will be moving up to the 2nd section next year, and although sad to see great players and friends leaving we are excited by the prospect of strengthening the team as we move up. We rehearse Mondays and Wednesdays 8pm-10pm, with time off for good behaviour! Usually our calendar has a nice balance of contest and concerts, we don't do much outdoor work, we have a steady list of regular engagements that tend to be well filled concerts in nice venues.

    2013 sees the band planning for the Area (March), Real Ale festival (Easter) and the Isle of Man Music Festival (April 28th), followed by Whit Friday and interspersed with various concert performances, we will then start planning the back half of 2013 and see if we fancy an entertainment contest of two (something we do very well in) or maybe take on a different challenge.

    If you'd like to know more, get in touch, or stalk us on the website - www.emleybrassband.co.uk

    Nope - that's just how cool we are up on the outskirts of Huddersfield - but if you need to find us H D 8 might be a better bet ;)

    I'm pleased to be able to announce we've already filled the Bass and Horn seats, and are now only seeking a cornet player, We'd love to find a Solo Cornet player ideally to enhance our already strong cornet team, but would be equally happy with any cornet player who would add to our team :) Get in touch!

    Is it me? it's certainly that time of year . . . Having worked our socks off, we've filled our cornet seat, only to have our Solo Euphonium move up to play at a higher level. . .

    If you're interested in a Solo Euphonium seat with a forward thinking team, get in touch ASAP, as you can see, vacancies never take too long to fill at Emley.

    Also, Due to illness we are also advertising a back row cornet seat, if you enjoy the challenges of the back, bringing quality and balance to our ensemble then give me a shout. . .:)
