More news from Camborne Town Band

Camborne Town Band have announced the signing and return of top Euphonium player John Hitchens.

A former Principal of the Band and Euphonium Champion of Great Britain in 94 and 98, John brings a wealth of experience to the Camborne ranks after a period of rebuilding.

Camborne MD Kevin Mackenzie commentated, "I’m excited to build further on our talented group, adding one of the most experienced players; he’s going to be a real asset to the band, his commitment as a player and bandsman is unquestionable."

Chairman Nick Sanders added: “This is a major coup for Camborne. We have seriously high ambitions and want to perform at the very highest levels both in concerts and on contest stages. Signing a player of John’s calibre will certainly help us to do this.”

John added, "I’m very happy to join the band. They are ambitious and I feel that I can get the most out of my playing. The band work very hard and I am looking forward to playing at the very highest level again with Camborne."
