Soprano Cornet

Sian Brogden

I started playing the cornet when I was 8, initially through Oldham Music Service where I soon joined the Dobcross Youth Band. After almost 4 years there, I moved to Lees Band and then to Oldham Band (Lees) before joining Boarshurst’s front row in late 2014.

Growing up in Saddleworth, and watching and participating in Whit Friday, I have always enjoyed playing and listening to brass marches. My favourite piece is Howard Snell’s arrangement of Respighi’s Pines of Rome, a piece which I am lucky enough to have performed at the Royal Albert Hall.
