Woodwind Section Leader Needed

We urgently need a Section Leader for our Woodwind Section.  It can be immensely rewarding to help develop the skills and abilities of the many young people taking part in the Festival, and we’ll give all the support, help and guidance you’ll need.  If you would like to help, or know of someone who may be interested, do please get in touch with our Secretary, Mary Smith, through the ‘Contact’ page of this site.

We look forward to hearing from you.
