Departure of Musical Director Garry Hallas – May 2019

The band would like to announce the departure of Musical Director Garry Hallas who has led the band with distinction since 2016, taking over from Ian Scott. We have enjoyed contest success at Pogson Bray in 2017 and a very successful programme of concerts with Garry’s programming and compering skills building a strong audience with sell out concerts at our new bandroom, the Memorial Hall Hessle. Garry has been far more than a musical director and has been an active and supportive member of the management team with fundraising and the move to the new bandroom.
We wish Garry well in his next musical venture and every success in the future.

David Vivian Chairman
