Bradford Metropolitan Concert Band formed some thirty years ago is a 35 member Adult wind band based in Baildon, Bradford. We have a vacancy for an experienced Musical Director. The current MD aims to hold the position for the next 12 months or until a suitable candidate is found so we can be flexible regarding start dates etc. We rehearse above a private social club in the historic Baildon Hall and take on a healthy mix of bandstand events and concerts both public and private. The band has a tour to Jersey in August next year for a week and is also supporting 'the tour de france' as it passes through Ilkley in 2014 amongst other exciting opportunities. We have very well attended rehearsals and engagements and the library is second to none. Also the band is very well equipped with instruments and percussion. The band has built from some 12 players through to 35 players in the 5 years that the current MD has been in post and the band's standard has gone from strength to strength. It is with this in mind that we will be looking for a forward thinking and proactive Musical Director who has a very firm commitment to the band. The current musical director has given 12 months notice in order that they can take part in the selection process ensuring that the continuation of this excellent band's future is in safe hands. The MD is leaving the band for family reasons. Please take a look at us on our website http://www.bradfordmetroband.co.uk/ email firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest.
