Brighton & Hove City Brass are looking to recruit a Soprano Cornet for the London Regionals and potentially, beyond. If you could also do the scaba contest in Brighton in early March, that would be a bonus!
We rehearse on Mondays in Brighton with additional Wednesday rehearsals in the run up to...
Here's info from Steve:
Yes I recorded Bone Idyll with Sun Life Stanshawe Band around 1980 ish. Think it was on an LP called Conductors Showcase. Derek Bourgeois wrote it for me as part of a Granada Band of the Year Programme that he wrote or arranged in its entirety. It was an adaptation of...
Currently at around 16 trumpet/cornet related instruments......because I am single, this number could well increase! ;)
No specific favourite so listing by type with the reasons:
Soprano - My Schilke is the best sop I have ever played.
Bb Trumpet - I have a fab original Selmer Paris which is my...
I am temporarily closing this thread to new posts. When conversations are happening from the same IP address, it suggests that some of the accounts may be the same person with multiple identities.

I met Russell Gray a few years ago when he came to our band to help us in...
So on that basis, it would appear that the set of the Eb suite as used in the 1972 regionals can be copied but the latest edition from Studio can't. (It is physically different, both in paper size and additional text on it).
Which leaves one last question for me: would a regional committee ban...

The Parachute regiment supply a large percentage of the SAS but they are separate regiments with their own regimental marches. The Para march is "Ride of the Valkyries". Andy Ellis, a fellow former member of the Para bands, has done an arrangement for Brass Band which I have sent to the OP.
Having only recently returned from living in Germany for a few years, I am only just getting back into using the site so have no idea if the owner when I left is the same today.
