Meet the Band  -   EUPHONIUM



Richard Brain - Principal Euphonium

I was in veterinary practice in Honiton for many years at the New Street Veterinary Centre, working with
farm animals,
pets and horses. While already singing with the ‘Sheldon Singers’, which gave me
some knowledge of reading music, I started blowing the cornet at evening classes about 23 years ago,
which a group of us formed our own musical group. From there I joined Honiton Band on the ‘back
row’, playing
second cornet, then repiano. I played 1st Baritone, followng the retirement of Arthur Dunn
from the band and am
currently on 1st Trombone. Apart from my musical interests, I also enjoy
cycling and have cycled from John O’Groats to Lands End, staying at Youth Hostels and with
relatives. I have 3 children
(all grown up!), scattered across the country and 2 lovely granddaughters.
