4th Solo Cornet

Dave Holt

I started playing a brass instrument at the age of 11 at Blue Coat Secondary School, initially starting on the tenor horn and trombone. I moved on from here and eventually joined Boarshurst Silver Band in 1974 on tenor horn, then eventually moving onto cornet in 1985.

As you can imagine I’ve played many different pieces, may it be through my school band or through Boarshurst. However, when talking about test pieces I would say my favourite one would be Journey Into Freedom.

In my past I’ve also played with Brighouse & Rastrick (all be it for a few months) making two CD recordings with them, as well as playing in a few concerts.
