Acting Principal Cornet – George Sandford

Most memorable playing moment …

Playing the Firebird at the BBC Proms a couple of years ago- fantastic piece of music!

Proudest banding moment …

Winning UniBrass for the first time with the University of Manchester brass band and then defending our title a year later.

Previous bands …

I spend most of my time playing in orchestras but I’ve had the privilege of regularly playing with The Fairey Band, The Templemore Band, Uni of Manchester Brass Band, the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire Brass Band and Wantage Band.

Favourite piece …

Anything by Mahler or maybe Don Quixote by Strauss. Specifically for band? Madiba by Andy Scott or Unholy Sonnets by Philip Wilby.

Musical ambition …

To split fewer notes!
