A couple of months ago our prize winning solo horn player Karen sent her Besson Horn back to Besson to have some fault or other fixed. As it had still not appeared last week our band secretary contact Besson to find out how much longer it would be repaired. It was at this point that Besson realised they had mistakenly sent the Stannington Band (Sheffield) horn to another band who had sent them a horn with the same fault. No problem you think? Not so... The other band are an Australian band!! So if any Austrailian tMPers read this and see that the horn they have got has a Stannington Band sticker on the side... get in touch, it'd be interesting to know where it has ended up. Besson have kindly agreed to send us a brand new horn as a replacement, and provide a guest soloist for a future concert of ours as compensation.
