We are sorry to announce that our Musical Director, Kevin Steward, is leaving the band at the end of June. Kevin is relocating to Singapore for work reasons. Kevin has had a hugely positive impact on the standard of the band since he came on board in February, and we will all be very sorry to see him go. Recent concert performances have met with comments such as "Superb", "the best the band has ever sounded", "A perfectly balanced selection of music".
