Percussion Vacancy

An opportunity has arisen for kit, tuned and general percussion in Derwent Brass

Our consistent percussion team has for the past 4-5 years comprised Sion Hathaway, Grant Ashenden and Sam Jowett.  A vacancy will now arise as Sam Jowett is moving away to Cardiff School of Music in the summer of 2010, and the band are currently seeking a replacement.

Sam is a versatile percussionist (as are the other two on the team) and plays kit, timps, tuned as well as all the other challenges thrown at the percussion team.

If you want the opportunity to fill any or all of the gaps that will be left by Sam's departure, now is the oppoprtunity.

As a percussionist you will not be bored in this band, we regularly perform up to date concerts featuring choreography, swing music and big concert items that make demands on the percussion team and our Musical Director is enthusiastic about the value the percussion team brings - you will not be an 'after-thought' in this band.  The band frequently includes a big-band set with appropriate staging, and there is also a 10pce ensemble that regularly performs swing at receptions and celebration functions etc.

Percussionists in Derwent Brass are valued and kept busy, this is the opportunity to join the team: initially just e-mail you interest and basic details to [email protected]
