    Whitworth Vale & Healey Brass Band are please to announce the appointment of Jason Smith (columbo) as their new musical director.

    The appointment comes just before the bands tour of Germany, and the band are looking forward to working with Jason for the up and coming concerts and contests in the 3rd section.

    The band would like to thank everyone who applied for the position and we had some enjoyable rehearsals during the auditions.

    No worries Tone. I will definitely bear you in mind. Looking forward now in settling down and making good progress with Whitworth.

    Thanks to Dave and the team for making me feel really welcome. A great set of bandspeople with fantastic attitude. The youngsters are a credit with a great respectful and willing frame of mind.

    Brian has done great things with them here and it can only benefit the band as they integrate well.

    May I take this opportunity to pass on my congratulations to Whitworth Band for an excellent choice for M.D..

    I know Jason Smith very well, he has a superb playing background and has gained experience in Conducting in the correct manner. He has gained that experience in the 4th section over the last couple of years teaching players the correct way to play and the correct way to approach banding. He has a super man management approach and I am convinced that with the quality of players who are at Whitworth, I am convinced that this partnership will be very fruitful within a very short period.
    Best wishes to you all for the future.

    Look forward to seeing you all at Pontins.
