To open the new contest season, Cory Band is pleased to welcome two new arrivals to the cornet section.
Hannah Plumridge will play 2nd cornet as she begins her studies at the RWCMD from September. Latterly principal cornet of the Mount Charles Band in Cornwall, Hannah’s first engagement with Cory will be the British Open contest in Birmingham.
Also joining the front row team is Adrian Williams, a RWCMD graduate and long time friend of the Cory Band. Adrian has played with Cory on numerous occasions, either on soprano cornet or
front row and as he starts a new job as a school teacher from September his schedule allows him to join the band full time.
Musical Director Philip Harper said: “I was very impressed with Hannah on the recent Cornwall Youth Brass Band course and encouraged her to audition, an audition she passed with flying colours. Adrian is such a good player that he will fit in anywhere in the section, and I’m delighted he will be playing with Cory.”
