New Musical Director for The Wigston Band

The Wigston Band Organisation are thrilled to announce the appointment of Ian Needham as the new musical director for the senior band.

Ian came into the brass banding world in 1992 after enjoying many years playing trombone within amateur orchestras. He went on to play in Croft Band as well as Syston Band, South Midlands Coop Band and Ibstock Brass. However, he found his true passion was with a baton in his hand, conducting Croft Band since 2002.

Ian relished the challenge of conducting the band to many high contest placing and also trips to the National Finals on a couple of occasions. He is now really looking forward to helping The Wigston Band progress within the 2nd section.

We are looking forward to welcoming Ian into the bandroom and starting work on test pieces for upcoming contests and
enjoyable programme pieces for our concert bookings.
