Becontree Brass are band are sorry to announce the resignation of Musical Director Graham Sheldon. In his 3 years in charge Graham took the band from the second section to the first, at the first attempt, by winning the London & Southern Counties 2nd Section title. A healthy influx of new players now sees the band pushing towards championship section standard- and Graham now feels that the time is right to move on. Graham's last engagement with the band will be at the Barking Salvation Army Community Carol Concert, on Saturday 2nd December. Becontree are hoping to name a new professional conductor in the next few weeks.
