So, a couple weeks ago, the Triangle Brass band cornet situation was very unsteady.Â That is fixed now, I believe.Â I have auditioned all of the people that were in sub status and offered membership to people to fill in the cornet section.Â We now have:
6 Solo Cornets
1 Killer Eb Cornet
3 2nd cornets
3 3rd cornets
Out of that, we should have enough to cover the parts at every rehearsal.Â I hope.Â I feel much better about this situation now.Â We have one tenor horn opening that is not critical to fill.Â We have 2-3 tuba openings that are critical to fill.Â Quality is a must, here.Â We need some solid tuba players to join.Â We could also stand to get one more percussionist to join as a full time member.
So, the personnel issues are working themselves out, which will only make the band stronger.Â A lot of effort is going into this aspect of the band.Â So far, the experience is very positive and the future looks very good for the TBB.
