New Direction - John Hudson

Mon 12th Mar 2018

After working with us for the area contest we are pleased to announce that John Hudson has been appointed our Musical Director.

John started playing the cornet at the age of 11 in Wakefield, West Yorkshire. At 14 he was principal cornet with Wakefield Schools Band and a year later became leader and Principal Cornet with Yorkshire Schools Band. In 1976 he joined Grimethorpe Colliery Band where he enjoyed playing concerts in the UK and as far afield as Australia. More recently John was Principal Cornet with Virtuosi (GUS) Band and has enjoyed conducting bands up and down the country with some success.

John has a history with the band and conducted us when the band was last in the Championship section back in 2010. John's experience and expertise are a breath of fresh air in the bandroom and we look forward to working with him going forward.
