2nd Cornet

Banding High:- Being responsible for the 'demolition' of the Free Trade Hall (Manchester) following his over enthusiastic attempt to reach a top Db during a performance of Trittico and failing… Alan Lawton was especially pleased!

Banding Low:- Coming second in the National Finals (at the Royal Albert Hall) in the old second section, especially when the band that won it was Welsh, there was a Welsh adjudicator, the composer was Welsh and the test piece was based on 'Variations of the Welsh National Anthem'!!! mmmm…

Ambition:- to be able to 'double and triple tongue properly'… Any ideas?
