Are you our next Musical Director?

We are looking for someone with a passion for brass bands with the following skills and experience:
  • Demonstrated conducting experience, preferably with a brass band
  • Knowledge of contemporary brass band repertoire, both for concerts and contests
  • Well-organised with demonstrated time-management skills

  • Actively contribute to the recruitment and retention of suitable players for an A grade band
