Wanted: new band leader for Goring

THE Goring and Streatley Concert Band is looking for a new music director to replace Richard Powell, who stands down after five years.

The community wind band, which has around 50 players, has developed significantly during the last five years and they are hoping the new music director can continue in the tradition.

The band rehearses weekly on Monday evenings in Goring and presents two formal concerts a year — one at Christmas and one in spring. They also give around 10 open-air performances during the summer months at school fetes, regattas and local village shows.

It is hoped that the successful candidate would be able to start by September.

Applications close on Friday, June 27 with “meet the band” sessions and auditions for short-listed applicants planned for July. Anyone interested should visit the band’s website at www.goringand
