The Virtuosi GUS Band are pleased to announce the appointment of Cliff Pask to the Flugel seat following the resignation of Clair Tomalin. Cliff brings with him a wealth of top level banding experience having previously played for Aveley and Newham and Redbridge as well as guesting for many of the top bands in the UK. Until last year Cliff was Aveley and Newham's Principle Cornet player where he led the band to both the 2006 area championship title and the 2006 Grand Shield title.
Shawn Pagington in a statement told of his delight in signing such a talented and experienced player.
"Cliff has worked with the band previously on both concert and recording work and there is no doubt that he is a very versatile player. We are delighted he has accepted the position of flugel with the band. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Clair Tomalin for her contribution to the band's success over the last 3 and a half years and wish her all the best, following her decision to relinquish the flugel seat due to her own business commitments".
