On 20th November 2016, I played trombone with the Band of Durham / Northumberland Wing Air Training Corps. We won first place in the Air Cadet Organisation (ACO) National Band Championships at RAF Halton. I was one of the 21 cadets who play in the band.

This is me in the picture being inspected playing my trombone.

I have also recently been informed that I have been selected to attend the National Concert Band of Air Cadet Organisation in February 2017. This is a very prestigious honour and I will attend a working band camp at RAF Cranwell. The week will end with the Band performing a concert at Whittle Hall. I am so excited to have been chosen.
