Grimethorpe Colliery Band are delighted to announce the appointment of Michael Bach as the band’s new Professional Musical Director. Michael has taken the band for the last three contests and everyone is really excited to be working with him on a long-term basis.
Michael will visit the band four times a year which will include all the major competitions as well as some other high-profile performances.
The band are pleased that they now have a conducting team in place that will help them to compete for major prizes in the years to come. Michael joins Steve Phillips, the Resident Musical Director as part of a new artisitic team and it’s a partnership that has already hinted at success with the band’s performance at the recent British Open Brass Band Championships.
“The appointment as Professional Conductor of such a famous and world-renowned band as Grimethorpe Colliery is of course a great honour for me, and I look forward to being able to realise many exciting projects with the band. I will strive to continue and add to the great musical legacy of the band, especially in terms of repertoire development with new music, but of course not without neglecting the competitions.”Michael Bach
