Unleash Your Potential

Geneva artist and Principal cornet of the, world famous, Black Dyke Band, invites cornet and soprano cornet players of Grade 5 standard and above to join him for his Cornet Spotlight at Huddersfield Town Hall on Sunday 9th June 2024.

Attendees can look forward to a morning of fantastic music-making and a chance to elevate your skills. The spotlight also offers an opportunity to connect with other cornet players and have fun! All you need to bring is your instrument, your mouthpiece, a stand and your enthusiasm!

Speaking on the event, Richard told It's Not a Trumpet:

“This is probably my 13th or 14th Cornet Spotlight now, and I get a real buzz of enthusiasm every year for the event. It’s a fun packed morning full of ‘cornet goodness’ and numbers over the years have been between 40 to 90. Let’s hope for another great turnout this year!"
