New signings at St Dennis


In recent weeks, due to other commitments St Dennis Band has received a number of resignations.

Fortunately, the band has also had a number of new signings. Lee Wylde joins the band on Principal Cornet. Lee was previously playing Principal Cornet for Bodmin Town Band and he will be joined by his partner Kellie Roberts on front-row cornet. Kellie was also a member of Bodmin where she played flugel horn.

Meanwhile, following the departure of Colin Whitford, Dominic Turner joins the band on Bass Trombone from Camborne Band. Dominic also plays Bass Trombone for the Cornwall Youth Brass Band.

Catherine Dowrick returns to the band on back-row cornet. Catherine played Repiano Cornet for the Band 12 years ago and now returns on back-row cornet. Her son James is also a member of the Youth Band cornet section.

To accommodate the new cornet positions, Robert Commons has moved to Repiano Cornet and Francesca Bazeley to tutti solo cornet.

These are very strong signings for the band as they continue their busy summer season and look forward to competing at Prestatyn contest in October.

The Senior Band has a Solo Trombone position available whilst the Youth Band also requires Euphonium, Baritone and Bass Players. Other positions also considered.
