Principal cornet vacancy at Jedforest

Sunday 16 December 2018

Due to player relocation, Jedforest Band is on the lookout for a new principal cornet player.

Situated in the Scottish Borders town of Jedburgh on the A68 between Edinburgh and Newcastle, the 2nd Section band is hoping to fill the vacancy as it prepares for the Scottish Brass Band Championships in Perth next March.

Band Chair David Lightbody commented to SBBA: “We are a highly motivated organisation with over 30 regular players in the senior band with an average attendance of 24 players per rehearsal. The band competes a minimum of twice per year and holds several concerts in and around the Scottish Borders as well as other public engagements.”

Under Musical Director Philip Rosier and band trainers Rob Hume and Cameron Mabon, the band rehearses twice a week on Sundays and Thursdays at 7.15pm in its own purpose-built band hall in Jedburgh.

David added: “The position may suit any up-and-coming player looking for an 'end seat' or an established player looking for a change of scene.”
