Farewells at Flixton
After a musically inspiring year as musical director of Flixton Band, Ian Brownbill has decided to end his tenure.
During his time with Flixton, Ian has led the band to great success at the NW area contests, taking Flixton to 1st place in 2017 and 3rd place in 2018. The band achieved a creditable 8th placing at the National Finals in Cheltenham in 2017 and will be returning to Cheltenham this year having secured promotion to the 1st section.
A spokesperson for the band told A4B: “Ian’s musicianship and motivation was appreciated by all the band and he leaves Flixton well placed to progress into the 1st section. The band would like to say a big thank you to Ian for all his hard work and inspiration and wish him every success for the future.”
The band will be inviting applications for the position of MD shortly.
