Gilbert Returns to Derwent

Derwent Brass are delighted to announce the appointment of Lee Gilbert to the percussion section.

Lee Gilbert returns to the Derwent Brass percussion section following a tenure with the Staffordshire Band whilst completing studies at Stafford University. Lee who has also played for other Midlands contenders including the Ratby Cooperative Band, first joined Derwent Brass in 2011 and was an integral part of the section for 3 years.

“Lee has many friends within Derwent Brass and we are pleased to welcome him back. Increasingly with modern works, the demands on the percussion section are high and you need a strong team. There is no doubt that Lee is a talented player and alongside existing members Ross, Elliot and Stephen I’m confident we will have a very strong team indeed.” (Keith Leonard, Musical Director)

Lee recently performed with the band at the Bolsover Festival of Brass and joins with immediate effect ahead of the band’s preparations for the upcoming LBBA contest. The band wish Lee a long and enjoyable stay.
