The Amsterdam Staff Band (Bandmaster Olaf Ritman) recently announced a personnel change in the cornet section.
Hans Lenting (second cornet) has decided to farewell from the band. This was Lenting’s second stint in the band. The Staff Band thanked him for his service and wished him well as he continues his work with the Vlaardingen Band of the Salvation Army where he serves as the band secretary.
To fill the gap in the cornet section, the Staff Band welcomes Johan Hocque from the Haaglanden Corps. Hocque has helped out the band on several occasions, the most recent being last November when he substituted on soprano cornet.
