New Faces to Boost our Ranks Ahead Of Regionals
We are pleased to announce the signing of Will Dakin (soprano cornet) and Sam Noden (solo euphonium) ahead of the North West Regional Brass Band Championships at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens.
Will, currently in his final year at Sandbach School, starts at the RNCM in September and is also a member of Lions Youth Band. Will told us “I am absolutely delighted to begin my adult banding career with VBS Poynton. I’m excited to see what the future will bring!”
Sam, a first-year RNCM student, moves to Poynton from Dobcross Band. Sam told us “It’s an honour to be accepted by such a successful, progressive band. I am ready for the challenges that face me on solo euphonium at Poynton.”
We are especially pleased to welcome such fine, young players to our band.
On behalf of everyone at VBS Poynton Band, we wish a very warm welcome to both Will and Sam and hope they have a long and happy time with us. Their signings move us closer to securing a full team for Blackpool, with just a few cornet seats left to fill.
Both players will make their debut with band in concert at Boarshurst Band Club on 29th January before taking to the contest stage for the first time at the ‘area’ on 26th February.
