Moore for Derwent

Derwent Brass are delighted to announce the appointment of Joel Moore as their new Solo Baritone.

Joel was formerly the Principal Euphonium of Cornerstone Brass before joining the Nottinghamshire based Thoresby Colliery Band where he enjoyed a successful period including two appearances at the National Finals. During his studies at Nottingham Trent University he also gained the Alumni Instrumental Award giving him a wealth of performance opportunities both in the UK and abroad, as well as finding time to achieve his music performance diploma on Euphonium.

“After a break from banding due to work commitments, I’m really looking forward to playing again. Derwent Brass is a great opportunity for me and as a band recognised for pushing the boundaries, I’m certain the future will be an exciting one.” (Joel Moore)

Joel fills the vacancy recently left by Adrian Drewitt who held the seat for an impressive 20 years!

“It is with deep regret that it is now the time for me to relinquish my position at Derwent Brass. This has not been an easy decision to make after such a long period of commitment, but it is just no longer sustainable whilst holding a full-time job, starting a new home business and bringing up a young family. I leave the band on the best of terms having made countless happy memories and many friends over the years. I sincerely wish them and my successor all the very best in their future endeavours.” (Adrian Drewitt)

The band management would like to formally acknowledge the unremitting dedication Adrian has shown to the organisation for the past 20 years both as a player and occasional committee member. Following an audition process, we are also delighted to welcome Joel into the mix and wish him a long and enjoyable tenure with the band.
