With the sudden departure of 2nd Euphonium player Lauren Jones, the band has moved swiftly to appoint Rachel as the newest addition to the section. Principal Euphonium Jamie commented:
'It is great to have a player of Rachel's quality sitting beside me. She is fully aware of my conducting commitments and is happy to deputise in the solo euph seat when I'm not there. I know where will become a formidable team and it's an appointment I am thrilled about.'
