Death of Neil Jowett

It is with great sadness that we would like to inform our supporters and friends of the passing of one of the shining lights of Huddersfield Wind Band, Neil Jowett. Neil headed up our trumpet section for many years and also took the baton many times as our musical director.
Neil will be hugely missed by all of us, both as a friend but also as an accomplished musician who was always so supportive of other players, and I think we can all say we learned a lot from him over the years!
We would like to thank him for all he did for the wind band and to send our sincere condolences to Christine and the rest of the family. 
We feel this photograph of Neil (with Nigel our tuba player) sums him up so well, with a warm smile on his face, taken at one of our last concerts after he had played the Post Horn Galop when he stunned both audience and band with his skilled playing.
