Blackburn & Darwen has announced that Dan Thomas has been appointed as their new Musical Director.

It will mean a return to Lancashire for the RNCM graduate who currently plays second euphonium with Brighouse & Rastrick band.

Fantastic opportunity

"It's a fantastic opportunity to develop my conducting whilst working with my home town band," he said. "They have a great history and are coming up to their 180th anniversary which everyone is looking forward to.

They have a dedicated team of players and committee, and I believe that in time we can get back to the Championship Section where I believe they belong."
