Hello Considering a return to brass bands if I can be persuaded its not going to be boring or physically dangerous... I am in good practice (played first cornet in the Vaughan Williams London Symphony last week). Usually I play trumpet/pic/flugel so I coud play cornet/sop/flugel in a brass band without too much trouble. The down side is that I don't like contests and I am not going to commit to endless rehearsals for them. I would even consider helping out as a deputy for concerts if your band needs an extra player occasionally.
