We are sad to announce the resignation of Simon Gresswell as musical director of Carlton Brass. Unfortunately Simon has family commitments in his home county of Yorkshire and heavy load at work that makes it problematic to fully commit his time to the band. Being the professional he is, Simon has relinquished the baton.
We would like to thank Simon for his hard work, professionalism and for his undoubted musicality whilst leading the band and we wish him all the best for the future.
Stepping into the breach is our own band master Paul ‘Wink’ Watson, who will provide stability and guidance through the summer months and will lead the band in fulfilling its summer engagements. Thanks Wink.
The band will be inviting applications and holding auditions for a new M.D. around September time, with plans to enter local own-choice and entertainments contests in the autumn and the NEMBA and area contest early next year.
