Wantage appoints Joe Murray
Wantage has announced that principal cornet Sara Wallbridge has taken the opportunity to move to the flugel horn role, whilst the band welcomes former Brighouse & Rastrick player Joe Murray to take over from her.
A band spokesperson stated: "Sara has been a wonderful principal cornet, most notably on our appearances at the Albert Hall in 2014 and 2016, her solo at the Welsh Open in 2018 and numerous concerts and events. We are thrilled that she will carry this on as our flugel player. We're delighted to welcome Joe who has now settled in Berkshire. Joe has played with us on previous occasions and we are looking forward to him leading us when we start back with our rehearsals."
