KNOTTINGLEY SILVER BAND
NEW MUSICAL DIRECTOR
ADDED 3 OCTOBER 2006
Knottingley Silver Band have announced their choice of new Musical
Director following the departure of Kevin Belcher. The new man is Robin
Morgan LFAM ARCM FTCL, who stood in as temporary Musical Director during
the bands audition period.
Robin is originally from the Bristol area and moved north in 2001. He
played solo euphonium with Pennine Brass and was assistant Musical
Director to Ian Porterhouse. He then left Pennine and was Musical Director
and guest conductor at a number of bands until ill health forced him to
curtail his activities somewhat.
Neil Johnson, band manager at Knottingley, echoed the sentiments of the
band when he said he was delighted with the appointment. “We had some
high quality applicants for the post of Musical Director and I would like
to thank them all, but Robin was head and shoulders above the others”,
The band are already hard at work under Robin’s baton preparing for
concerts at St. John’s Church, Wakefield, on the 21st October, and at
Wakefield Cathedral on the 28th October.
“I’m enjoying working with the excellent musicians at Knottingley
Silver Band and looking forward to a new challenge”, said Robin.
