Eb Bass Player required - CMFCB

Carlton Main Frickley Colliery Band have an immediate vacancy for a top class Eb Bass player due to ever increasing work commitments.

The successful applicant will be a player of the highest calibre and will understand the importance of teamwork and commitment and will have a desire to achieve.

CMFCB have been quietly and confidently building a settled team over the last few years and after a number of decent Contest results over that period, that progress has been rewarded by a steady rise up the World rankings to our current 11th place.

In spite of this, the band is not resting on its laurels and views this opportunity for the right player to join a successful, committed and ambitious band at the right time in order to push on and consolidate a top ten placing in the World!

Led by resident conductor Dennis Hadfield, and with professional associations with Russell Gray, Gary Cutt and Frank Renton, the Band has a number of decent concert opportunities for the rest of the year, and will be competing in the English Nationals, the British Open and Scottish Open competitions before year end.

If you feel you have what it takes to join this hard working, committed and fun Band, then give John Kendall a ring in the strictest of confidence on 07745 004 094.
