VACANCY – MUSICAL DIRECTOR

Thrapston Town Band

Established in 1858 and believed to be the oldest surviving brass band in Northamptonshire, we are a friendly and busy community based concert band with a broad range of engagements throughout the year.

 We like to entertain and we are seeking an enthusiastic and like-minded MD who will be committed to helping the band continue to grow and develop.

We are currently an unregistered, non-contesting band however we do enjoy entering entertainment contests.  We have a strong tradition of teaching and developing players and we currently have learner and intermediate classes in operation.

We rehearse twice a week on a Monday and Thursday at a location just outside of Thrapston,  2 minutes from Junction 12 of the A14.
