Flugelhorn – Peter Mackley
Originally from the Midlands, Peter played for the Royal Doulton Band. Upon moving to the Cambridge area 30 or so years ago, Peter played Cornet and Flugelhorn with the Fulbourn & Teversham British Legion Band, followed by a long stint as Haverhill’s Flugelhorn player. Having had some time off due to work commitments, he returns to the horn section. Pete has conducted many bands in the area and for several years has successfully guided Cottenham Brass.
Solo Horn – Matthew Waterson
Originally from Huddersfield in West Yorkshire, Matthew started playing in the Hade Edge Training Band alongside his twin brother, Adam. Matthew moved down to Cambridge to study Engineering and during his degree he conducted the University Brass Band. After graduating, Matthew played for Waterbeach Brass before joining Haverhill in 2019.
First Horn – David Aves
David brings 40 years experience to the band. He started as a cornet player with the Loddon Band, progressing to principal euphonium. He gained his first experience in championship banding with the Clacton-on-sea Cooperative Band. He has also played both euphonium and tenor horn with Soham Comrades Band and with Norfolk Brass.
Second Horn – David McClintock
Dave started on Eb Horn under David Read, back when Boosey was an apprentice and hadn’t yet met Hawkes. After grade 8, he took up the French Horn, as was the tradition at his school, and played in all the youth ensembles around Cambridgeshire.
He joined the Army as a Musician back in 1988, finishing in 1997 with the Band & Orchestra of the Royal Artillery Regiment and moved back to Cambridgeshire, joining several Orchestras and The Huntingdonshire Concert Band (HCB). David had been MD for HCB for 16 years until 2019, when he took a sabbatical. and now looks forward to taking up the position again after an extended break. He has recently completed the Trevor Head course in Brass Musical Instrument Repair and am a member of the national association NAMIR, and hopes to be offering this as a service to other brass players once my workshop is ready.
Having also taken a break from HSB in 2019, David missed the quality and friendliness of Haverhill Band and so is happy to have been offered a place back in the band and hopes his jacket still fits.
