Return of The President!

Fate brings founder member back to Derwent! 

Derwent Brass are delighted to announce the return of one of our original members and Band President, after an absence from playing of 9yrs.

Neville Eden left the band in 2003, having been with Derwent since it’s formation in 1992. 

Increased work & family commitments forced the move, but Neville never lost contact, indeed taking on the role of President whilst not playing.

Having returned to the area, moved jobs and with children older, he decided to see what was happening with his old crowd at Derwent.... looking on the website www.derwentbrass.com on what happened to be the very same day a vacancy was placed for back row cornet!

“I couldn’t believe it when I saw the vacancy” said Nev, “It was like fate was trying to tell me something, so I contacted Keith that day. It’s good to be back.”

Nev has not lost his touch and is proving a great asset to a strong back row.

Conductor Keith Leonard said “It is fantastic to have Nev back, especially at this special time with the new commission together with celebrating our 20th anniversary year.”
