Hi to all, glad to meet you, my name is Katy, I'm 16 years old and I'm from Wrexham. I'm currently principal cornet in Llangollen Silver Band and Wrexham County Youth band. I'm also solo cornet in Llay Welfare Band. Not really very well- known bands, I know, but they're great fun to play in! I'd like to make a career out of music in the end, I've just finished my AS and my lecturer gave me full marks in one of my compositions (woo, go me!). It was a piano duet, as I play piano too, but there's not as much you can do with a piano as you can with a cornet! I'm really glad I found this forum where I can chat to people with similar interests, so I should be on quite a bit. As well as music, I love Harry Potter (with a passion!) and being an eccentric. I did the Whit marches last Friday with Llay. We came 42nd or something last year which was disappointing but we hope to have done better this year as we have a new conductor (we've had 5 conductors in the past 2 years or so but thankfully I think we've reached a stage of stability now =)). We played Men of Harlech and Cross of Honour, which were two great pieces! Although by the end of it we were all shattered and I didn't get in til 2 in the morning. But it's all good fun. Anyway, that's me in a nutshell! And here I am with my younger sister Mia, just after a festival we did earlier this year (I'm the one with the dark hair and glasses =)) Toodloo!
