    Hitchin Band has appointed Mr Martin Hurrell, Assistant Principal Trumpet with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, as Musical Director.

    This is not Martin's first time with the band having conducted them for a few months in 2005 and helping them win a place at the National Finals of the Brass Band Championships of Great Britain.

    Unfortunately, Martin could not take the Musical Director role on a permanent basis then, but the band is very pleased that he is now able to join full time.

    Band Secretary, David Milsom, said:
    "All members of the band are immensely pleased to welcome Martin back and have him working with us again. We hope this will be a long and rewarding relationship for everyone."

    A biography of Martin is available on the band website
