Paulette Morton - 2nd Baritone

Paulette is a mum to two grown up children and granny to a lovely granddaughter. She works in our village primary school which is where she first picked up a brass instrument in 2009; she was instantly hooked! Joining Ripon City Band (then 3rd section) as a real beginner on 3rd Cornet, she played in her first regional contest in March 2010. We played Percy Fletcher’s Labour and Love, and she'll never forget it, or the experience. 

She'll give most things a go and jumped at the opportunity to play tuned percussion and timpani in 2013. She had great fun and something she thinks everyone should try! In May 2016, she made the move to 2nd Baritone. She feels privileged to have been with the band as it has progressed from 3rd to 1st section and she's thoroughly enjoying the challenge and the opportunity to further her experience and broaden her horizons on this musical journey with the band.
