Christmas Concert 2011

Hi fellows

 

what a great evening I had on the 18th. I cannot express how much it meant to play in the bandroom again after so many years, but what a bonus it was to meet so many of my old freinds and to be conducted by Jonah, who in no uncertain terms has shown what a grounding in the fellowship we had at Glossop can lead to if you have commitment. I know that several of my contemporaries went on to make great names for themselves within the higher echelons but I am sure that not one of them forgot their roots. Mine started with Jack Fletcher who heard me during a woodwork class as I was singing Hi Ho its of to work we go whilst spoke shaving a curly end of a bookshelf. To see the man who gave me the love of my life ( Eb Bass ) because I could not play a 3rd cornet part quietly enough for the solo cornet to be heard made my night. If you read this Jack, Many thanks.

1st rehearsal

Happy New Year from all at Glossop Band.  The band had a hectic but successful festive period and is looking forward to all that 2012 can bring.
First rehearsal back is Tuesday 10th January at 8.15pm. 

Christmas Concert

The Bandroom, Derby Street.

Tickets £5 with under 16's free.  Doors open 7.15pm

Vacancies

Cornet player needed.

Glossop Old Band is currently graded as a Championship section band but are currently a non-contesting band due to shortage of players.  We currently have 14 brass players and 3 percussionists which form a well balanced group and perform regularly in the Bandroom and other venues in the local area. 

We are looking for an experienced cornet player to join the solo cornet rank to play either ‘bumper up’ or principle cornet.  You wouldn’t need to register with the band and if required could play at contests with other bands but we would need commitment to one rehearsal a week and the concerts the band has booked.

 The band rehearse once a week on a Tuesday evenings 8.15 to 10.00pm

 Applications should be sent to glossopband@yahoo.co.uk or please call Janet Lewis on 07887 997374 for an informal chat.
