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”, he said.

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.

Further information about Knottingley Silver Band can be found on the band’s website or by phoning Garry Pearson on 01484 665260
