The cornet section are to a brass band what violins are to an orchestra; they are often the highest sounding voices and frequently carry the tune.
The soprano cornet provides a similar role to that of a flute in an orchestra whilst the repiano cornet plays a solo part underneath the solo cornets (similar to what you may find in a clarinet part).The backrow cornets (2nd & 3rds) often have trumpet type parts and add a vital colour to the unique brass band sound.
The principal cornet player leads the section and is involved in all decisions about how the section operates.
