Crewe Brass Musical Director Matt Pithers said: “I am delighted to have been appointed as the Musical Director of Crewe Brass. The opportunity of being a part of such a warm, friendly, driven group of musicians was too good to miss. The band is full of potential coupled with a willingness to learn and improve. Having just been promoted to the First Section at the beginning of the year, the future is looking bright. I look forward to achieving continued musical excellence with them in the years to come.”
