    [h=2]Current Vacancies[/h][FONT=Georgia !important]Whaley Bridge Brass Band is actively seeking a few new players!

    Following some recent personnel changes, Whaley Bridge Brass Band have immediate vacancies for the following playing positions within the band:

    · Principal Bb Cornet
    · Solo Bb Cornets (2 positions available)
    · 3rd Bb Cornet (1 position available from July)
    · 2nd Tenor Trombone
    · Bass Trombone

    The band has gone through a serious transition over the last 2 years under the direction of Musical Director Matt Shaw, and we have made a positive return to contesting, most recently at the 2014 Buxton Festival of Brass and the 2014 Whit Friday march contests. The band enjoys a sensible but varied calendar of concerts, contests and social events throughout the year, and performs a mixed selection of old favourites and new pieces.

    Recent concerts highlights include the 2014 Whaley Water Weekend, and the band’s annual performance on the bandstand at the Buxton Pavilion Gardens. Upcoming concerts include a performance at Taxal Church on July 12th, a WW1 Commemoration Concert at Whaley Bridge Bowling Club on October 10th and a Bierkeller Night on November 15th at Kettleshulme Village Hall!

    We rehearse every Wednesday night, 19:30 – 21:30, at
    Kettleshulme Village Hall, Macclesfield Road, Kettleshulme, SK23 7QU.

    Anybody interested in any of these positions is invited to either contact Musical Director,
    Matt Shaw, on matt-j-shaw@live.co.uk or 0161 442 4173

    or email the band’s Engagements Secretary, Lorraine Jenkins, at davyandlorraine@btinternet.com ,
    or just come along to a rehearsal!

    All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence, and instruments and equipment are available if required by the successful candidates.
