We would like to announce that our 5 year partnership with Musical Director Andy Austin has now come to an end.
Since taking up the baton in 2011, Andy has brought a wealth of fresh ideas and new approaches to the band and we would like to thank him for his incredible dedication to the band over this period.
Under his direction the band have achieved successes including winning the southern counties association contest on 2 occasions and podium finishes at contests around the country.
Andy has also introduced the band to a wide range of new music including a number of his own fabulous arrangements and his groundbreaking approach to entertainments has been praised by both adjudicators and listeners.
His support in developing the "band of tomorrow" with his approach to youth players' development has been invaluable to us as an organisation.
We wish Andy all the best in his future endeavors and know he will be an asset to any organisation he moves onto.
