Both MD’s are excellent musicians and will help further develop the band. Ian, as a well-respected musician brings a set of fresh ears and ideas to the band and will work closely with Andrew who will use his experience and knowledge of the brass band world, to develop and maximize potential. Ian and Andrew will share upcoming conducting duties with immediate focus on Wychavon Entertainments Contest where Andrew will lead the band.
