New Musical Director appointed
The band and committee are delighted to announce the appointment of Bruce Wallace as our new Musical Director. Bruce began his musical career on trombone with the band in the 1980’s and is a native of Arbroath. He is a renowned conductor of both wind and brass bands, as well as regular performer in bands and orchestras around the East of Scotland.
Following the departure of long-term conductor of twenty years, Michael Robertson, the band are looking forward to a new chapter with Bruce as conductor. Bruce’s first concert as MD will be at the Gala Concert on 13th September at 7.30 pm in St Andrew’s church. Tickets available at the door and from band members.
