We are both delighted and excited to announce the appointment of our new Musical Director, Gavin Holden!

Gavin has vast experience with the baton and has directed some of the finest military bands in the country during his career, including Her Late Majesty’s, The Band of The Coldstream Guards.
Gavin had both a brass band and wind band musical upbringing, and is a talented trombonist. 🎶 🎺

Gavin said, “I am absolutely thrilled to have been appointed as the new Musical Director of Allerton Brass. The band is so welcoming, brimming with vibrancy, and full of talented musicians who have so much exciting musical potential on offer. The band’s foundation is clearly built upon friendship, teamwork, family orientation and, of course, musical drive, passion and enjoyment. The band has achieved so much and has excelled in the 10 years since its formation. I will work hard to add to the band’s overall musical success and I very much look forward to all the exciting musical ventures, and challenges that lie ahead, for us all”.

Join us for Gavin’s first concert with the band on Saturday 27th April at the Tung Auditorium! 🎭🎬 Tickets are available here:
