Carlton Brass are pleased to announce the appointment of Geoff Hawley to the post of Musical Director. Geoff is a long-time friend of the band and brings a wealth of experience to the role.
Geoff previously conducted the band at Butlins in January where we attained a highly credible sixth place in strong field.
Geoff takes over from Stan Lippeatt. The band would like to thank Stan for the hard work and motivation during his time with us. His efforts earned us a fine fifth placing at the Midlands Regional Championships in March and we are very thankful for his guidance during his tenure.
The band would also like to thank Christine Lippeatt, Amy Mondschein and Mark Wardle for their help over the last six months or so. Their talent and cheery personalities have given the band a lift and we have really enjoyed having them within our ranks. We wish you all the best for the future.
2011 has seen the band reach new heights in the quality of our performances and are determined to keep the improvements coming under the expert direction of Geoff Hawley. Welcome to the band Geoff!
