Rachael Baum

Aug. 6, 2014

Rachael Baum – Hathern Band

It is with great sadness that we have to announce the death of our Solo Horn player, Rachael Baum who died in the LOROS Hospice in Leicester on Friday 25th July.

Rachael was not only an outstanding tenor horn player but a true bandswoman. Having been taught by the late Bud Fisher, Rachael was a member of the Loughborough Band who won the Midlands Youth Championships on 6 consecutive occasions, and the National title.

Rachael has ensured a lasting musical legacy as her husband Simon is Principal Trombone with the Band and her middle son Jake is part of the percussion team, her younger son George plays euphonium in the Hathern Youth Band.

Our love and thoughts are with Simon and their sons, Harry, Jake and George, at this very sad time.
