After 10 very successful years with Woodley Concert Band, our Musical Director John Sayer has taken the decision that now is the right time to stand down and his last formal engagement as MD will be our Spring concert on March 24th 2018.

The band is incredibly grateful to John for all of his hard work during this time and we'll be looking to end his tenure on a high at our Spring concert.

As a result we now have a very exciting vacancy for an inspirational musical director of Woodley Concert Band!
