    Front Row Cornet wanted (East Anglia)

    Woodbridge Excelsior Band will have a vacancy for an ambitious front row cornet player following this years Areas. We are an improving 3rd Section band who only returned to contesting in 2002 and have since then managed 5th and 2nd in the Fourth Section and 6th last year on our 3rd Section debut. This January we won 3rd place at Skegness. We don't have any ambitions to achieve Championship level but we think we can do a lot better than we already have!

    We welcome all applications, so if you want to come along to a rehearsal and play, or just listen to see if you like our sound, just speak to our Secretary....

    I hadn't seen it, no. I've just been to have a look. We're probably too far away to be of interest though; at least a couple of hours on the train from London :-(

    Thanks for thinking of us though!

    Woodbridge Excelsior need new talent!

    Now that the band is settled with our new MD, Alan Duguid, we need to add a few more players
    to come up to full strength.

    We have vacancies for front row cornets, percussion and bass trombone - interested parties please
    apply by email to our Secretary Sara Norris (secretary@woodbridgeexcelsiorband.org). Please include
    your playing CV, we do like to know a bit about our new players' backgrounds!

    We have a varied and interesting engagement calendar that normally includes four major concerts
    a year. We are a contesting band, mainly Regionals at the moment although we had some success
    at the Mineworkers in 2005 and there are plans afoot to consider other contests during the year.

    The band is currently extremely "energised" - our 8th place at this years Regionals represents a
    vast improvement since Alan took over and we are not looking back. Alan is keeping the pressure
    up and we are tackling interesting and challenging music. If all that sounds like a band you'd like
    to be part of, send us an email!

    Woodbridge Excelsior Band, L&SC, Basses

    Calling Bass players! Do you want to come and join a friendly, hard-working 3rd Section band with a talented (and future star) conductor at the baton? With Alan Duguid in front of us and an ambitious programme of contests and concerts, 2007 is guaranteed to be an exciting time for the band, starting with the Mineworkers next week.

    We rehearse on a Tuesday night, with one extra rehearsal per month on a Friday. We have a large bandroom with good facilities and good quality instruments available for loan.

    The vacancies are for one Eb and one Bb, although we have enough instruments to cater for a total of 3 Eb and 3 Bb players if anyone would like to join but perhaps would prefer not to contest.

    Please see our website for more information about us, and contact details:
