Andrew Pearson - 2nd Cornet
I first started playing when I was 8 years old where I played both Cornet and Trumpet. Before I joined Hoover in 2011 I had taken a 32 year break from playing. My favourite test pieces are The Plantagenet’s and Shakespearean Rhapsody. My favourite Concert piece is Harry James Concerto for Trumpet (Glad I don’t have to play it!!). My most memorable moment with Hoover would be qualifying for the National Finals 2013
Joanna Riley - 3rd Cornet
I first picked up the cornet while at School aged 14. In 1993 I joined Hoover's Cornet section. My favourite Brass band test piece is Oceans, just love the dance that Jacko does to this. At the same time one of my all time pieces to play and listen to would have to be Eric Ball's "Resurgam". The most memorable moment I have got with Hoover was qualifying for the national finals at Cheltenham.
