Golden Ears Jazz Band
member:
Cathy McNeil

 



Cathy McNeil is one of the trumpet players for Golden Ears Jazz Band. She also plays French Horn player for the Maple Ridge Concert Band. During her school days, Cathy also played flute, but getting married and having children put Cathy's music on hold for a few years. Twenty-five years later, Cathy started her musical career again with the MRSS parent band, and after a little poke from Nedra Casoria (Golden Ears Jazz sax player) she began playing trumpet for Golden Ears Jazz Band. Cathy loves to play her trumpet French horn with the bands, however, the flute playing has been relegated to when she goes camping with her family, where she plays to the appreciative audience of her dog Nike and cat Rojo.
