One for the history books – Thanks Chris, and welcome Rachel!

Following the band’s AGM this evening, Chris Walker has decided to step down as Chairman of Derby Concert Band.

We would like for formally thank Chris for the many many hours of work put in – through the good times and not so good times (and we’ve had a few of those!), he has steered us well during his three year tenure in the role and we are all exceedingly grateful for the commitment and dedication shown.

Following appropriate nomination and agreement, in a historic moment for the band, we will have our first female Chairman in the band’s 42 year history!  We would like to welcome Rachel House in to the role – we wish Rachel many years happy sailing at the helm of the good ship DCB!
