Burry Port look for new conductor for 2003

Mike Thorne returns to playing leaving MD position vacant

 

Michael Thorne who has been Musical Director of the band for the last ten years has decided to take a back seat and will instead be a playing member of the band. Whilst all the band are very disappointed that Mike has taken this decision, we are more than delighted that Mike will be playing with us next year.

The band would like to take this opportunity to express our heart felt thanks to Mike for his amazing service to the band, especially over the last ten years. He is a brilliant musician and the time, effort and guidence that he has given the band has been truly inspiring.

The band are eagerly looking forward to the New Year, especially its first appearance in the Grand Shield in May.

As a result of Mike's decision, the band have a vacancy for a Musical Director.
