Thrilled

Band Chairman Steven Cavanagh told 4BR: "We're thrilled Amy is joining the team. She is a fantastic young talent and has already impressed many with her playing, particularly with her recent concerto performance at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire's 'Brass Fest' concert, and her playing in our critically acclaimed RNCM Brass Band Festival concert."

He added: "Her decision to undertake further study at the RNCM paired with the unparalleled musical direction and guidance of our professional conductor, Prof David King, makes it an extremely exciting time for both Amy, and the band."

I'm excited to be starting a new chapter with Brighouse & Rastrick and I look forward to seeing what the future holds — starting with the Area contest in HuddersfieldAmy Ewen

Excited

Speaking about her appointment, Amy added: "I'm excited to be starting a new chapter with Brighouse & Rastrick and I look forward to seeing what the future holds — starting with the Area contest in Huddersfield.

I would like to say a huge thank you to Grimethorpe Band for the most enjoyable and enlightening months of my performing career so far. I have laughed at every rehearsal as well as thoroughly enjoying the concerts, contests and recordings under the directorship of David Thornton.

They have been invaluable to my musical development and I wish them all the best in the future."
