We have recently said goodbye to our solo horn player. We would like to officially thank Ally Crowther for doing an amazing job leading the Fulham horn section for over 12 years and wish her luck in her new pursuits. Surely there’s nothing better to do than spend your Monday evenings down at a rousing Fulham Brass Band rehearsal? If you fancy joining us, we are looking for percussionists as well as a solo horn player! If you are coming to London soon, drop us a line on our contact us page.
As well as our new solo euphonium Jonti Smith we have been joined by Catherine Whittingham on B flat Bass and Paul Findlay on bass trombone – both members of the British Army Corps of Music. Jenny Butterworth from St Pinnock band in Cornwall and RNCM graduate, Alice Godfrey have joined our solo cornet section. Jonathan Barker joins us on first baritone having played for years with Salvation Army bands.
At the moment we are working hard for the Autumn Southern Counties Amateur Band Association (SCABA) contest in Crawley. Wish us luck as we compete against Championship section bands! We are also preparing for our Autumn Concert on 15th October at our home, St Etheldreda’s Church in Fulham. We have a tradition of including either a soloist or other music group in our concerts and this time we will see the Alle Choir join us again. We hope to see as many of you there as possible!
