New Wings For Fairey Band As New MD Appointed
Adam Cooke appointed as Musical Director of the Fairey Band
The Fairey Band has the pleasure to announce the appointment of Adam Cooke as its Musical Director. Adam will take up his position with the band as soon as current health restrictions permit.
Having spent 3 years as resident conductor with the Norwegian National Champions Stavanger Brass Band and following consistent success conducting GUS, Adam takes up his new role after relocating to Manchester.
The band is confident that this will be a rewarding and successful partnership as Adam comes with an impressive CV that will bring a new, fresh outlook in his approach. Through this engagement, the Fairey Band demonstrates a strong desire to look to the future and bring much needed innovation to the band’s performance and to the wider brass band world.
Continued success on the contest stage is also the aim of this change in direction and Adam is considered to be the person to deliver improved results through an injection of energy and enthusiasm.
Adam commented, “I’m thrilled to be taking on this role and looking forward to building on the huge legacy of the Fairey Band both on the contest stage and by continuing the band’s reputation for breaking new musical ground. We’ll be using the time away from the band room over the coming weeks to push towards these goals and I am eager to get to work once it is safe to do so”
