Blidworth Welfare Band has welcomed the arrival of talented young cornet player Corey Kohut who comes into the third cornet section.
The 13 year old has been playing since the age of 8, where he found a love of the cornet after having class lessons in primary school. He recently took his Grade 5 performance exam, passing with distinction.
