Have you ever been a playing member of Glossop Old Band?

Are you free and available on Sunday 18th December?   Then this message is for you.
GLOSSOP OLD BAND have secured the services for their Christmas Concert this year at their bandroom in Wood Street, of a conductor who is undoubtedly among the finest in this country, if not the world.   I refer to the current Senior Director of Music of the Household Division and Director of Music to the Coldstream Guards, Lt. Colonel Graham Jones

Graham Jones’ early interest in music was encouraged while a pupil of Glossopdale College and he furthered this interest as a member of Glossop Old Band during this period.

He began his military career studying the harp whilst serving as a musician with the Royal Artillery Band.   In 1981 he was selected to become a Bandmaster and attended the Royal Military School of Music, Kneller Hall for three years during which time he was rewarded with prizes for composition and orchestration.  He rose through the ranks conducting a variety of Army bands and received a Master of Music degree from Reading University and gained his Doctorate of Music Arts (DMA) at the University of Salford in the summer of 2006. Among the more recent highlights was the wedding early this year of HRH Prince William to Miss Kathrine Middleton (now Duchess of Cambridge) when he Directed the Massed Bands of the Household Division outside Westmister Abbey.

Lt. Colonel Jones is now very much in demand as a lecturer, adjudicator and conductor in both Europe and the United States, where he has recently been guest conductor at Leigh University, Pennsylvania, USA.

The success of Glossop Old Band in securing the services of such an eminent conductor is seen as a great opportunity for any former playing members of the band to come along to the bandroom on the 18th December, not only to meet with Lt. Colonel Jones MBE, but to listen to the Glossop Old Band and maybe even to play a part in the concert.   

One of the traditions of the Christmas concerts is for ‘guest’ players to come along to have blow and this year we would love to welcome former players to sit in with the band during the 2nd half of the concert.  To make sure we have enough chairs and music is would help if you could contact and let us know what instrument you play.
