In November 2014 Christian moved jobs to a more lucrative position in the City. He comes from a family of brass-banders and previously played for Wantage band. When not playing Christian is part of the unofficial band pub quiz team and is the band's Contest Secretary.
Danny Crawford - Euphonium
Danny has been playing in the band since his school days, thus making him one of the longest serving members. He is one of the elite few who have celebrated (or commiserated) over 25 years in the band. He originally started in the band playing cornet, then moved to soprano and then onto Euphonium, where he has stayed for about the last 20 years other than a couple of breaks from the band and helping out on Baritone every now and then.
