2017 brings some exciting changes to the band, with the appointment of our new Musical Director, Paul Roddy. Paul has had a varied professional music career, teaching for the county music service in the West Midlands and here in Cornwall, as well as being a professional brass musician.
The band are looking forward to a great year with some new challenges, some new music, and hopefully the band will continue to grow.
We also owe to big thank you to our now retired MD George Lawry, for taking over the band 27 years ago, making the transition from Brass Band to Concert Band, and directing the band through many successful performances, concerts and competitions, and receiving a Gold award in the National Concert Band Festival, South West in 2015. George is looking forward to playing again, and will still be a part of the band as a Euphonium player.
Here’s to a great year 🙂
