10th January 2018: It is with great sadness that we learn of the death
of the legendary and award winning conductor Betty Anderson.

Betty came from a family with a background of over a hundred years in the Brass Band movement  having followed in the footsteps of her father and grandfather as a tenor horn player.
A soloist from the age of eight and a conductor from the age of fourteen, success in both fields resulted in her winning the tenor horn championship of Great Britain on two occasions.
She became the first woman to conduct in the long history of the British Open Championships and in 2002 Betty was awarded the Harry Mortimer Medal by the Worshipful Company of Musicians for her contribution to the Brass Band Movement.
We were delighted, and honoured, when Betty - a breast cancer survivor herself - agreed to conduct us at our second annual concert in October 2007 to raise funds for breast cancer research.
She was a very talented and highly respected lady who taught and helped so many.
R.I.P. Betty. You will not be forgotten.
