Fakenham Town Band

 

Flugel Horn - Catherine Moore

Catherine started playing brass in 1993, by sheer chance - she had auditioned for lessons and not been selected, but her friend decided not to continue after six months and she went and asked to take her place - and the rest is history. Joining Fakenham Town Band in Spring 2005, Catherine has previously played with South Norfolk Youth Brass Band, South Norfolk Youth Symphonic Band, New Buckenham Silver Band, and East Coast Brass.

Catherine enjoys all types of music, both listening and playing, although her favourite is probably rock. Catherine particularly likes playing with Fakenham because the band isn't afraid to break boundaries with the style of music that is chosen, with everything from hymns and marches, to rock, pop and heavy metal.

Catherine particularly enjoys playing different music with different bands and conductors, and can often be found helping another band with a concert. Sight reading and performing with an unfamiliar group is challenging and increases musical discipline, in turn aiding playing development.

Catherine says that she has been incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunities to play in different places, including the Whit Friday Marches (a fantastic experience) and at the National 4th Section Finals at Cheltenham Racecourse in 2015.

Away from banding, Catherine runs a 154 acre farm in the east of the county with her husband Simon (who also plays in the band), and they also have a coach operations business - which is handy for taking the band out every so often!
