    Stape Silver Band (Pickering)

    Stape Silver Band, located in Pickering, North Yorkshire is actively seeking a new Musical Director/Conductor due to the forthcoming retirement of its long standing bandmaster. The band has a long heritage and tradition within the North York Moors and Ryedale areas having celebrated its 125th Anniversary in 2009.
    Stape is an extremely friendly and fairly ambitious band, competing in the area championships as well as a number of other contests in the North East. These along with a varied programme of mostly local engagements provide for an active involvement for all concerned.
    The successful candidate will be someone who can develop and nurture the band's talent through positive motivation and leadership. In particular we are looking for someone who can create a fun and enjoyable atmosphere at rehearsals, balanced with the need to motivate the band to work hard. In overall terms we are looking for a candidate that can bring fresh musical impetus, ideas and energy that can take the band forward and hopefully to an early return to 3rd section status. Experience of working with lower section bands is desirable.
    The band currently rehearses on Tuesdays and Thursdays 7.30pm - 9.30pm in our own band room located in Pickering (YO18).
    Applications can be made in the strictest confidence via e-mail to Tanya Rex at or by leaving a message on 07531 987245.

    OK... so brass bands are full of allotment holders wearing flat 'ats and breeding ferrets. They don't go on wild weekends all over the country (and out of it), drinking too much and cavorting around all night, they would much rather have a cup of tea.........

    .. I might just have a blow with your band when I’m up on the moors again in that case!

    I thought the old site was good where I copied and changed the above quote. I particularly enjoyed reading the Ay-Up Magazine!
