There are exciting times ahead for Whaley Bridge Band as Matt puts them through their paces on traditional brass band music but also adds new variety to their repertoire.
“ I am delighted to have been appointed as musical director for Whaley Bridge Band” Matt told us. “It is my intention to expand the band’s current repertoire to include more swing influenced pieces, allowing me to draw upon knowledge gained from my previous position as a big band director. I am looking forward to working with the band, and I am eagerly anticipating my début performance with WBB later this month.”
The Band have a very full programme of engagements over the next few weeks, so there is plenty of opportunity to see Matt in action during May and June: full details on the band’s website whaleybridgebrassband.weebly.com Not to be missed is Whaley Rose Queen Festival on Saturday 30th June when Matt will lead a massed band of over forty players with Whaley Bridge Learner Band joining the seniors at the head of the carnival parade through the town.
