Returning players fill cornet seats


Wed 23rd Aug 2017

We are pleased to announce the return of two ex Kibworth players who are joining our cornet section.

Stuart Bryan has joined us play Repiano Cornet. Stuart has a long tradition of high quality brass banding in his family. Stuart most recently played with the top section Virtuosi GUS band. Stuart has been involved with Kibworth for many years, and was part of the team which won the National Championships in 2006.

Also joining us is Andy Chapman. Andy first joined the band in 1981 and since has played with a few local bands including Enderby and Melton. Andy also comes with memories of Kibworth successes from National Finals in 1989 where we came second, although Andy says his best moment in banding was getting a "Well Done" from Roy Newsome for his triple tounging in Pageantry.

We welcome both these talented players to the band and look forward to working with them. Hopefully we can replicate the successes of the past.

We are still on the look out for another tutti cornet player and a BBb Bass player, if you know of anyone who may be interested please put us in touch.
