    Our current Musical Director has gained promotion and will be leaving the band shortly to take up a new post; this has created an exciting opportunity for a new MD.

    WTB is a 4th section band which has been in existence for over 100 years. The band has 3 concerts a year, a number of fête-style jobs throughout the summer and a busy Christmas period (a large percentage of which is Christmas carolling when the Musical Director’s presence is not obligatory). The band would like to get back into contesting and continue working with the local community and schools.

    The new Musical Director will be able to support the band’s varying musical programme throughout the year, attend weekly rehearsals (Thursdays 8-10pm), be a strong leader with experience of taking or playing in large ensembles and be sympathetic to the band’s development.

    If you would like to apply for this voluntary role (expenses available) please send your CV and a letter of interest to: secretary@wolvertontownband.org.uk by 21st November 2008. The committee will shortlist candidates week commencing 24th November and those selected will be invited to conduct a short repertoire (to be specified by the committee) with the full band on a practice night through December. The new appointment will be taken up by 15th January 2009.

    Deadline for submissions and other dates:

    • 21st November - closing date for application (CV and covering letter)
    • 24th November - short listing
    • December - auditions
    • January - appointment
