Hi, My name is Hazel McAlister.I have been a member of the band since I was 10 years old having been taught by my father, Reuben Bannister. After his unexpected death in 2001 I left the band and have been busy raising my children, Sasha and Aaron. I have played in almost every section of the band and returned in May 2010 to play Principal Baritone. My highlights, so far, have been being a member of the "Threes Quartet" and taking part in the Star Brass television programme. In January 2014 I took up the position of Second Euphonium.
