At the City of Chester Band we're on a journey. A journey of improvement. We don’t just rehearse music, either: we learn to spin plates, too! Spinning the plate is our MD’s approach to improving basic playing techniques. We’re lucky to be working with Ewan Easton MBE, Principal Tuba with the Halle and Tutor in Tuba at the RNCM, and we’d like to invite more cornet players to join us on our journey. Commitment to attending rehearsals and gigs on a regular basis is just as important as your sound and playing ability. If you want to find out more about plate-spinning, our journey and the City of Chester Band ( then please contact Kirsty Blain ([email protected]) or Kate Harland ([email protected]).
