Chapeltown Silver Prize Band Musical director.
t is with great sadness and regret that Chapeltown Silver Prize Band announce the departure of their Musical Director. After almost 4 years with the band Sam Fisher has relinquished his role as MD, due to increased work and family commitments.
Whilst this is obviously very sad news, we do appreciate and understand that Sam’s priorities have changed. Following the challenges of the last 16 Months (particularly for self-employed, freelance musicians) the balance of Sam’s work commitments are now very different. This, combined with the easing of restrictions, has resulted in an increase in Sam’s workload as a performer, which makes a full time MD position difficult to commit to.
The band would like to express our sincere thanks to Sam for all his hard work, enthusiasm and dedication over the last 4 years, both in and out of the bandroom. We have performed some excellent concerts and had some fantastic results on the contest platform under Sam’s guidance.
We would like to wish Sam all the best in his next venture and we hope that we are able to work with him again in the future.
