New for 2013 - Deputy Musical Director

Northampton Concert Band rings in 2013 by appointing Neil Brownless as their deputy musical director.
This is after Neil took a successful rehearsal during late 2012 while their usual MD, Stephen Bell, was taking a well earned break. Usually Neil can be found playing trombone with the band.
