Kate Collins Rice
2nd Cornet

When did you join Littleport Band?

September 2022


When did you start playing and on what instrument?

April 2020 - about a month into lockdown 1, I bought a cheap cornet and taught myself to play, to the horror of my parents and neighbours.


Who was your inspiration when you started playing?

It was a viewing of Brassed Off that inspired me to buy the cornet...


Why do you enjoy playing at Littleport?

It's such a friendly band. I didn't know many people at all when I moved to the Fens, and it's been so lovely to be so wholeheartedly welcomed into the band.


What has been your most enjoyable moment so far with Littleport in terms of music performed, social events, contests or concerts?

Whit Friday! 


What would you like to achieve with Littleport in the future?

I'd like to get to the point where I can play all the notes...


Away from Littleport what else do you like to do?

I make all my own clothes, which at least is a quieter hobby for the neighbours!
