    Press release: 26th April 2011

    Leyland Band are pleased to announce the appointment of Rebecca Landon as their principal horn player. Originally from the banding heartland of Saddleworth on the Lancashire-Yorkshire border, Rebecca now lives in Leyland and until recently held the same position at the Hepworth Band.

    “I’m delighted to welcome Rebecca to the band,” commented Richard Evans, Leyland’s professional musical director. “She is a player of great quality and commitment, and her appointment is a tremendous boost for Leyland Band!”

    “To sign a player of Rebecca’s calibre is fantastic news,” added band administrator Iain McKnight. “Of course, we have been lucky to have a superb solo horn player for the last eighteen months in the form of Andy Moore, and we are pleased that he will remain with us. His move to first horn will allow him to devote more time to his university studies, and is a commendable display of bandsmanship on his part.”

    Leyland are also delighted to reveal that euphonium star Bill Millar will perform with the band at the forthcoming English National Brass Band Championships.

    “Bill is one of the finest Euphonium players around,” remarked Iain, “so we were quick to approach him to cover the second euphonium seat at Preston. It will be great to see Bill in his Leyland whites once again, and this news, along with Rebecca’s appointment, makes for an impressive middle of the band indeed!”
