Ireland Colliery Chesterfield Band is a Third Section Brass Band based in the heart of Chesterfield, Derbyshire.
We are very proud of our local roots and reputation within the community and are keen to preserve the brass banding tradition in this area of Chesterfield and Staveley.
The band has a busy and varied programme of concerts, competitions and engagements throughout the year meaning there is never a dull moment.
Ireland Colliery Chesterfield Band are looking for a Musical Director.
A fantastic opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and ambitious Musical Director to lead and inspire us.
We’re a friendly and determined contesting band, currently competing in the Third Section, having spent a few years in higher sections. We’re keen to return to the higher sections – and we’re seeking a committed Musical Director to lead the charge.
We have our own bandroom in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, close to the M1, and rehearse on Tuesday and Friday evenings from 7:30 till 9:30. We already have engagements for 2024, including plans for a Spring concert and the increasingly popular Festive Brass, held in the iconic Crooked Spire.
Expressions of interest and a brief résumé of qualifications and experience should be sent to email@example.com by Monday, 26th February.
It is anticipated that interviews/auditions will be held mid-March.
We currently offer a Training Band and a Senior Band to cater for the abilities of all of our members.
Anyone is welcome to join and our players include those that have never picked up a brass instrument before to those who are returning to playing after a number of years off.
We also offer one to one lessons on request.
All of our rehearsals are held in our own fully equipped band room at Field House, Dock Walk, Chesterfield S40 2AB
