November 2017

November 2017 has seen the appointment of Martin Moyse as the new bands Musical Director, his first position as an MD. Martin has big plans for the band which will and has involved a lot of change over the coming months.  Since he has been in the seat we have been working very hard at rehearsals on the marches and hymns for the Reddish Remembrance Sunday parade which tool place on the 12th of November. We received a lot of compliments on the bands playing and have already been booked to play at the parade in 2018. With the Remembrance parade out of the way we are now working on a Christmas program of the normal carols as well as some new and old set pieces ready for playing out in the coming weeks (check out our events and calendar pages if you would like to come and listen to us).

In the new year Martin is going to be putting a new pad of music together for the 2018 with some popular traditional band pieces, some new pieces and even some he has arranged himself. We are always keen to hear from players who would like to join the band and even players who are visiting the area and would like to join us for a blow on one of our rehearsal evenings (for details please check out our contacts page).
