Phillip departs with our best wishes!
St Albans City Band's Musical Director Phillip Littlemore stood down from his position at the end of June 2017 after 8 years at the helm of the Band. Originally asked to cover only one engagement in the Summer of 2009 Phillip had led the Band since that time with great enthusiasm and commitment. Phillip has now moved to the Isle of Wight where he says he intends to have nothing to do with brass bands - but we struggle to believe that!
Phillip conducts the Band in one last chorus of 'Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines'...
Band Chairman Simon Wilson presents Phillip with his leaving gift.
Phillip shows off his new glass paperweight to be used to stop all those new arrangements he'll be doing in the Isle of Wight from blowing away in the sea breeze!
Come and join your Local Band!
Did you play a brass instrument years ago and have started thinking about playing again? Have you just moved to the area and played in your previous area? Or are you playing elsewhere and fancy a change, or just want to come along for some extra practice? Then we can help!
St Albans City Band are a friendly group of players based in Hertfordshire and are currently looking for Cornets, Basses, Baritone, Trombones and Percussion players. We have our very own Bandroom (no packing stands away after every rehearsal!) and rehearse on a Wednesday night from 8 - 10pm. Our Bandroom is close to the centre of St Albans and is convenient for M1 and M25 junctions and is only 20 minutes from London St Pancras by train. If you are of Grade 5 standard or above, or have a history of playing in similar or higher standard brass bands to ourselves please feel free to get in touch.
If you play any other Brass instrument to the ones mentioned above you are still very welcome to come down - we would love to meet you!
