Emberley on Euph

Derwent Brass are delighted to announce the appointment of James Emberley on Euphonium following the recent departure of Martyn Hoffman.

James joins with immediate effect ahead of an imminent CD recording session featuring some of the compositions the band commissioned for their anniversary year. Previously a member of both the Fairey Band and Milnrow Band, he was most recently Solo Euphonium at Newstead Brass following a relocation to the area in 2017.

“The band were really sad to see Martyn leave, he’s such a great lad and a fantastic player, but unfortunately the huge commute to band just became unsustainable. We part on very friendly terms and wish him all the very best in his future playing career. We now extend a very warm welcome to James and are excited about the wealth of experience and talent he brings to the section. We hope his stay with us is a long and enjoyable one.” (Chris Leonard, Band Manager)
