    Hi there

    I'm an experienced cornet/flugel (Although I would prefer cornet) based in Yorkshire. I have played in Championship section and First section bands. I see myself continuing to play at this level although I would consider ambitious second section bands.

    My main experience is on the back row and I consider my best position to be repiano. I'm currently playing with a band at the moment but I'm looking for a new challenge.

    Are there any vacancies out there?????

    Yorkshire could be a country itself!
    are you north, west, south, or east ridings?

    We may be too far, but you'd be more than welcome to come for a blow at Hatfield.

    As LNA says (who travels from Wakefield), Ripon have space on all cornet seats for committed players. We do understand work and family commitments and we like a pint or 8 after band (8 when wife will drive) (like tonight)

    We do have players who can’t commit fully which is why we have so many spaces as an (associate player) who doesn’t hold a seat. (AP) players come when they can and are valued members, but we need to build the full timers back ready for the areas.

    POP down for a blow (brass players) a bang (perc players) or just a pint ALL PLAYERS.

    RIPON CITY BAND. On the move upwards, with YOUR HELP
