The Besses band recenty performed a concert at Glossop Band club. I was very impressed with the band and I must say, that I was very surprised to see such a young man at the helm. He seemed in good control and didn't appear to be flustered. Unfortunately I did not get to speak to him after the concert, but I was wondering if anyone had any information about the young man. I would be very keen to find out his age, because I haven't seen anyone as young conducting a top flight band. Many thanks R. P.
