    Corby Silver Band (Northamptonshire, East Midlands) are looking to appoint a new Musical Director to start mid November.

    We are looking for an experienced and enthusiastic resident conductor to work with the band on a full time basis.

    Currently rehearsals take place on Wednesday evenings 8pm – 10pm at the Corby Silver Band Club, although we have the intention of adding an extra rehearsal on Monday evenings after the appointment of a new Musical Director.

    The band is currently in the 4th Section and currently participates in two contests each year.

    We are interested to hear from anyone who can show talent, commitment and ambition, and work well with young and more experienced players.

    If you are interested in this exciting and challenging opportunity, or would like additional information, then please PM me or email

    Corby Silver Band invites applications for the post of Musical Director to lead our rehearsals on Monday and Wednesday evenings at 8-10pm.

    We are looking for a permanent MD who can motivate, encourage and progress the band through creating a hardworking and enjoyable atmosphere, bringing energy and new ideas to the band.

    The band is currently in the 4th section and currently participates in the 'areas' and one or two other contests each year.

    We have a busy schedule of engagements where the band plays at local events including fetes, theatre concerts, church services, charitable functions, and a range of Christmas events.

    The band is based in the town of Corby (5 minutes from the A14), where we benefit from the use of the facilities in our own purpose built band club, including an extensive library of music.

    It is important that the successful applicant will have good communication skills, and is able to work with the wide age range of players within the band.

    The band also welcomes new players of any instrument and ability who are interested in joining us.
