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 or please call Janet Lewis on 07887 997374 for an informal chat.
