Last night I realised an ambition of mine.
Due to Nigel, the regular conductor, being unavailable to conduct the Lions Youth Band in their annual concert in Cheadle, Staffs, I was asked to fill in for the night.
Since I started conducting it’s something I’ve always wanted to do; to conduct the band that started me off as a player in an evening concert. Last night I got to do just that. Ok, so it wasn’t the biggest of most important concert. But I’m proud I got to do it. It’s a night that will long live with me.
Particularly because it was freezing!
