Hi folks, I was just wondering if conductors in England (or elsewhere) are getting paid or not. Here in Switzerland they are getting paid (thats the normal case, I know that some conductors do it for free but that's en execption). The amount depends on the musical eduction of the conductor and the level (section) of the band. In my region e.g. a conductor of a 4th section band gets paid env. £ 2000.--- p.a. Thanks.
