Wetherby Silver band are delighted to announce that from the 2nd of January we have secured the services of tMP’s own Garry Hallas as Musical Director. Garry will lead the band forward into 2009 with his infectious enthusiasm, determination and drive. Garry is a long-time friend of the band and we feel fortunate that he could join us in the re-building of the band. Now in the Yorkshire 3rd section we are looking forward to a good year in contention at contests and still enjoying our active concert schedule. Garry has said: “I’m delighted to have found time to work with such a great, friendly bunch of people and am looking forward to a busy and productive start to 2009” Garry’s first engagement with the band will be the Preston Guild Hall contest on February 8th. Due to a potential clash of interests we are seeking a Professional Conductor to take us on the Area stage (March 7th), watch this space for an announcement. Thank You, Wetherby Silver Band.
