    Becontree Brass Band (London & Southern Counties Region) are pleased to be able to announce the appointment of our new Principal Cornet, Principal Euphonium, and Principal Baritone. After two months of auditions it has been decided to appoint Kathryn Green to the Principal Cornet chair, Alan Flower to the Principal Euphonium Chair, and Kevin Marjurum to Principal Baritone.
    Kathryn has previously played Principal Cornet with Daventry Brass, and the Northampton Country Youth Brass Band. Alan has a wealth of experience, being a founder member of Becontree, and went on to play for the Newham Band. Kevin is currently playing Principal Euphonium with Leigh on Sea Salvation Army Band, and is a former end man of the East London SA Youth Band.
    The band also welcomes Phil Adams-Howell onto 2nd Euphonium, and Tom Sladen onto Solo Cornet. Phil is a former Principal Euphonium with the Colchester Citadel SA Band- and played under Michael Clack in the Colchester Institute School of Music Brass Band- both alongside his brother- our Solo Horn player David Howell . Tom played Soprano Cornet with Hanwell band during the 1980's, and returns to banding having recently depped for Epping Band and Denham Hendon Band at the National Finals earlier this year.
    We welcome them all onto their new chairs! :clap:
