    Hi, I'm a Euphonium player, who is moving back to the Leeds area (Farsley) after finishing uni in staffordshire. Currently playing solo euph in a 2nd section band and have mainly played at 1st section/championship (an up and down band) level in the past.

    Ideally I am looking to play solo euph at a 1st section level, although would also be interested in any 2nd section bands with the ambition + commitment to progress.

    I'm going to be moving up at the end of August, so if there are any vacancies out there, please get in touch and I'll come down for a play.

    ps: I don't have a euph at the moment, as it was my previous bands, so I would need to borrow one.

    Come on folks. I have sat next to this guy for a couple of years and he is a very good euphonium player and is a genuine championship/1st section euph player.

    I know this because I used to play solo euph for an established championship section.

    Hi there

    I am section leader of brass and percussion in the band and we really need lower brass at the moment. We rehearse on Monday evenings in Birkenshaw - lifts would be possible as several band members come from Leeds. We are a good band and do tours abroad too - for example Belgium, Canada to mention a couple. We have a good social aspect too with parties/weekends away etc.
    Please get in touch if you are interested - you can cvontact me on 07725192170 or

    I will be happy to provide further information!
