Ratby Senior band Welcomes New Principal Cornet

The Ratby Senior band are delighted to announce the signing of Luke Pallister as their new principal cornet.

Due to a relocation with his work, Luke will join the band following bringing a wealth of playing and conducting expertise, after his final performance with the Leyland Band at the forthcoming British Open Championships in Birmingham.

Playing and conducting

Having started playing within the ranks of the Salvation Army, Luke went on to study at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and the Royal Northern College of Music, enjoying a successful spell with Foden’s.

As well as playing, Luke has been developing his conducting talents — and will lead Farnworth & Walkden to their first ever National Final appearance in Cheltenham next month.
