The [bclink id=”978″ target=”_blank”] (Bandmaster Richard Woodrow) announced some personnel changes at the beginning of the current season.
Daniel Frost moves from first cornet to solo cornet and Matthew Frost moves from second cornet to first cornet. In the baritone section, Michael Grimshaw moves from second baritone to first baritone. Bruce and Cameron Johnson have stepped down from participating in the band.
The numerical strength of the band is maintained with 41 members, including Major Richard Welch (executive officer) and the Bandmaster.
One of the marvelous aspects of the Norwich Citadel Band is the number of young people taking their place in the Band. At the current time, out of 41 members, 15 are of student age, with another shortly to take his place – a situation many other Salvation Army corps bands would dearly love to be in. As a family-oriented corps, nurturing these fine young people both musically and spiritually is something which older members of the corps undertake with relish.
