Musical Director needed for Winterbourne Winds

Avon Wind Band Association is a registered charity and comprises four wind bands covering players up to and including Grade 8.

Due to the impending retirement of one of the Musical Directors on health grounds, we are seeking a successor in one of our bands.

Winterbourne Winds, our youngest band formed in September 2014 from beginners and returners and is around Grade 2, meets on a Thursday evening each week from 7.30 – 9.30 p.m. at The Greenfield Centre, North Road, Winterbourne. Current membership – 18.

The band is keen to continue playing a variety of different types of music. All the Bands in the Association are managed by its own elected Executive Committee who appoints its own Musical Director and is responsible for paying the MD’s fee.

The Musical Director works closely with the Executive Committee on all band matters but is personally responsible for all musical aspects including band practices.

The Association would be very pleased to hear from anyone with previous experience of conducting bands or who is seeking to become involved in this aspect of music making with a wind band for the first time.

The Chairperson of the Association, Keith Hunt, would welcome any enquiries and would be pleased to answer any questions. Keith can be contacted by email and telephone as follows:- keh35@blueyonder.co.uk or 0117 9049125 or mobile 07733838985.
