The Brighouse & Rastrick Band are delighted to announce that Lee Harrelson will be travelling from the USA to work with the band in residence as Visiting International Professor for the upcoming contest and concert season.
B&R will be working under the musical direction of our Professional Conductor – Professor David King and Lee will be working closely with Professor King and the band. His period in the UK and residency with B&R will include rehearsals and concert performances as well as supporting the band’s preparation for both the ‘British Open’ and ‘National Championships of Great Britain’.
William Evans, B&R Band Secretary commented that, ‘This is an exciting time for the band and new professional and musical developments are always welcomed. I am sure Lee will bring much experience and musical criticality as he has the opportunity to be integrally involved with the band during this festival period.’
