Conductor Required

After many years of committed service, conductor Alan Jones has decided to “hang up the baton” at the end of 2018. Gravesend Borough Band is now looking to appoint a new conductor from January 2019.

Many previous conductors have had a military background but this is not a prerequisite. However, applicants should have a good understanding, if not experience, of concert bands and concert band repertoire.

Gravesend Borough Band is a community concert band comprising approximately 40 musicians of all ages from Gravesend and surrounding areas. The musical repertoire includes a wide range of standard concert band pieces from classical to modern, selections and themes from shows and films, and popular light music.

The band plays

  • a number of local council commitments throughout the year such as The Gordon Memorial service in January and Remembrance in November;
  • summer bandstands along the Kent coast; and
  • spring and Christmas concerts.

Rehearsals take place from 19.30hrs-21.30hrs every Thursday evening in St Georges Church Hall, St George’s Church, Gravesend .
