    Yorkshire Building Society Concert Brass Band has announced the appointment of its new Musical Director, Rob Savage, who takes over from Michael Hannan who recently relocated to Ireland.
    Under Michael the band excelled, winning the 2nd Section Area in 2004 and gaining fifth place in the 1st Section in 2005. YBS Concert is now looking forward to continuing this success under the leadership of Rob.
    Rob Savage, who is a graduate of the University of Huddersfield, has played bass with many bands including YBS Concert, Todmorden Old and Dobcross Silver as well as the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain (NYBBGB), where he held the principal Bb Bass seat for four courses.
    Prior to returning to his roots at YBS Concert Brass as Musical Director, Rob has been working as Associate Conductor at Dobcross Silver Band.
    YBS Concert’s next public performance is on Saturday 12 November
    at the Bingley Arts Centre at 7.30pm, where it will be playing both traditional and big band sets.
