A world number one for Watkins Brass

Children from Watkins Brass visited the Bulmershe School in Woodley on Sunday 14th July to meet Tom Hutchinson.  Tom is the current principal cornet player of the world number one Cory Band and is arguably the finest cornet player of his generation.  The children had the opportunity to meet Tom following a concert as guest soloist with the Reading Spring Gardens Brass Band.  The band accompanied Tom on a number of classic cornet solos such as the ‘Carnival of Venice’ and ‘The Paragon’ which showcased his absolute mastery of the cornet to all the children’s amazement!
