    Desford Colliery Band is delighted that the Jason Katsikaris has agreed to conduct the band in its defence of the Master’s title on Sunday 24 May.

    A spokesman for the band said: “Jason has a proven pedigree at the highest level; he is currently the principal conductor of the Leyland Band and has recently returned from ‘down-under’ where he directed Gunnedah to a historic National Championship win. We are very much looking forward to working with him.”

    In addition to the contest Jason will be taking the band on Saturday 23rd for a pre contest concert in the Corn Exchange in Cambridge.

    The band has also made a significant conducting capture for the British Open and National Championships later this year, more details to follow soon.
