Syston Band News

Syston Band is pleased to announce the appointment of Colin Jones as their new Musical Director. Colin picked up the baton at the beginning of September. The band takes the opportunity to welcome him into the fold, and to offer their thanks and appreciation to Chris Banks who has done a sterling job as interim MD in the meantime.
Colin has joined Syston as the banding year enters its busiest period. Preparations are underway for the Leicestershire Brass Band Association’s Annual Contest in November and the Butlins Mineworker’s Contest in January – with just the little matter of Christmas inbetween!
