We are delighted to announce that we have appointed Dave Howard as our new Conductor. We have been working together over the last couple of months during which the Band have very much enjoyed his rehearsals. Dave has already shown that he is very encouraging and supportive as a conductor, making the players feel at ease, allowing him to draw the best out of each and every one, whilst also ensuring that we all have fun and improve. Our Christmas Concert was the main focus and this was very successful. We have received a lot of positive feedback from those who attended both in terms of the programme choice but also what a thoroughly enjoyable evening it was. There was no doubt in our mind that we would like Dave to continue with the Band so we were extremely pleased when he agreed to do so.
