The famous Brighouse and Rastrick Band have announced the appointment of New Zealand cornet star Kyle Lawson to the position of Principal Cornet with immediate effect. Kyle holds the title of 2015 cornet champion in both Australia and New Zealand.
During his formative years Kyle was mentored by the highly respected NZ cornet player Kevin Jarrett and since 2010 he has been a recipient of the Dame Adrienne Stewart Performance Bursary.
For the past four years Kyle has been a member of the prestigious New Zealand Army Band and in 2014 won the inaugural ‘NZBF Young Brass Musician of the Year’ award.
B&R President Paul Beaumont commented: “It is an absolute pleasure to welcome Kyle Lawson, a young and enormously talented performer to this key position with B&R.”
