Welcome to our new MD

Following his work with the band for the Bolsover and Wychavon contests, we are delighted to announce that Colin Short has accepted the role as the band's new Musical Director.

With a number of faces departing the band due to family, work and study commitments we are looking forward to filling these seats soon and having Colin mould the band into a fighting fit Championship section band once again. With 8 performances in the run up to Christmas and the Championship Section of the Regional Contest to work towards in February (the set work is Derek Bourgeois's The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea), the band has a lot to look forward to, and will be using Colin's enthusiasm and expertise to the full.

We would like to thank our previous MD Kevin Gibbs for all the work he did with the band over the last few years and hope that it won't be too long before he makes a full-time return to banding (either as a conductor or player!). We would also like to thank Grenville Moore for stepping in and conducting the band over the Summer months, through our BBC Radio 3 recording and soon to be released CD recording (keep watching the website for details..!).
