    Yorkshire euph looking for a challenge

    How do. As you can see from my sig and previous experience, I've been playing euph a long time, and I'm currently top euph at the Band of the Yorkshire Regiment. I recently graduated from Huddersfield Uni where I was dumped on the solo seat (in the brass band) back in first year, keeping that...

    Ladies and gentlefolk, I have a 3 year old Besson 967 euphonium for sale, silver plated, with hard case and Wick 4AL mp included. It's in good condition (one careful lady owner, no major dents or problems) and has recently been serviced at Octave Above, so the valves are great. Both David...

    Recruitment corner could be clearer?

    Speaking as someone who has very little knowledge of geography, I'd love to see the recruitment corner separated into regions. It would help sooo much! Thankee kindly. x

    2 euphoniums, different places

    Hello there, two points of interest today. Firstly my dear older brother has not (as far as I know) played euphonium in several years, but would probably succumb to some prodding if a nice lower section band in Sheffield wants to take him in. Please note he would need an instrument, but he is...

    How many local bands do you have?

    Just a thought. Saw this in our local paper and was unimpressed with the tone - they obviously don't think there are any brass bands left around here... I wouldn't mind so much if they hadn't mentioned Parr Prize and Temperance Bands - I'm not clear on the history here but surely one of them is...

    Well, um, hi

    errrrrm yes hi all. My name's Helen, I play the euphonium, have done since I was ten. As my sig shows I'm in St Helens Youth and Greenalls Brass Bands, which gets exciting when both bands go to the same contest. Or want rehearsals on the same day. I live in St Helens, not far from where SHYBB...

    ID cards

    I'm surprised to see there isn't a thread on this already. In my opinion the UK government's proposals for biometric ID cards are morally outrageous. Here's the pledge: You'll find both me and my brother on there, along with many of our friends. But if anyone...

Am I doing something wrong? :confused: I used to go through the forums and check individually but since discovering the buttons I have discovered they don't work as well! Sorry to be the bearer of...

    music v. language

    I found this fantastic exam question while revising for my music exam (which is on Monday:eek: ), so I planned an essay for it and in fact thought quite hard (it hurt); but I'd love to hear some other views: Do you agree that music is more powerful than language? Give reasons for your answer...

    info on euph pieces please?

    hi y'all, just to exploit you as a resource again, anyone know anything about Midnight Euphonium (Goff Richards) or Concert Gallop (Philip Wilby)? I'm playing them for my grade exam tomorrow and having heard rumours that Concert Gallop was written for some kind of charity event, I'd like to find...
