Carlton Brass are delighted to announce the appointment of our new Musical Director Gary Glover.
Gary is an old friend of Carlton having played Euphonium and conducted the band on occasions in the past. He is the former Director of Music of the Nottinghamshire Police Band and now works in and around the Nottinghamshire area as a musician and teacher.
Gary already has a very busy diary teaching Music in two primary schools, several private piano and brass students, resident pianist at ‘Piano’ restaurant and principal euphonium in the Royal Signals (Northern) Band.
His varied musical experience and considered approach to his audition material greatly impressed the band and we are very much looking forward to having him conduct us at our rehearsal tomorrow night. Band spokesperson Dave Rutt said, “Gary has been a friend of the band for a number of years. He’s a super Euphonium player and has spent time both within the band as a player and as a guest conductor. It’s been a while since we’ve seen him but we are all anticipating some excellent rehearsals with him getting to grips with our summer concert material.”
Band Chairman Andy McCormack said, “Carlton Brass would like to welcome Gary to our band. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience and we are looking forward to him working with us.”
Gary said, “I am delighted to have been offered the appointment as Musical Director at Carlton Brass. It will be nice to be back with the band that holds many great memories for me”.
