New Opportunity for Hitchin Band Musical Director

Monday 5th October 2015

Hitchin Band would like to wish Musical Director Craig Patterson the very best for the future following his announcement that he is to take on a new position conducting Wantage Silver Band in the Championship Section. Hitchin Band has had a close working relationship with Craig since 2008, during which time the band has risen from 3rd through to 1st Section, gaining a series of Regional and National Final wins in the process.

We are now looking to appoint a new Musical Director ahead of an exciting year as we look to consolidate our position in the 1st section and prepare for celebrations to mark the 150th anniversary of the Hitchin Brass Band, formed in 1866.

For further information please contact the Secretary Mike Thorn on 07789 184363 or by email to secretary@hitchinband.co.uk

Applications will be treated in strict confidence.
