    I'm sure you'll all be pleased to know as we are that we've filled our 2nd Euphonium position.

    The position has been filled by Colin McDonald (Mac) who actually moved to Silkstone village around a year ago and lives 2minutes away from the band room.

    Old Silkstone Band obviously welcome Mac to the band and are looking forward to him playing with us. :clap: :clap: :clap:

    So all we need now to complete the band is a cornet player preferrably a 2nd cornet player but any other positions may be considered.

    We are averaging 21 brass players every rehearsal plus 3 percussion.

    So get in touch ASAP
