Nelson Brass sees the departure of Steve Brodie this month who has resigned from his position as Musical Director to devote more time to his business and other projects. Steve's contribution to the band saw high placings at the Area Qualifiers over the past two years and the band's subsequent promotion to 3rd Section. The band would like to thank Steve for his professionalism and enthusiasm in his short time with them and wish him good luck in his future career. We are now looking for a temporary MD (permanent position to the right candidate) to take us to the Areas on 26th February 2012. Applications with be treated in strict confidence and should be directed to the band's Co-ordinator, Agnes Stringfellow, who can be contacted by PM (Mrs Horn), e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or text/tel 07772 840019.
