Adam Cooke to step down from the GUS Band

Adam Cooke is to step down as Musical Director of the GUS band following his appointment as resident conductor of Stavanger Brass Band, which will see him relocate from London to Norway later this year.

After a successful five year tenure with the GUS, Adam will make his final appearance with the band at the 2018 Brass in Concert Championships - the contest where he made his contesting debut with them back in 2013.

Since taking over as Musical Director, Adam and the band have enjoyed unrivalled success in the midlands remaining undefeated for 5 straight appearances at the Midlands Area Championships, a feat never before achieved in the history of the contest. Other successes include two All England International Masters titles, two 2nds and a 1st at the Butlins Mineworkers Championships and a 4th place at the 2015 Brass in Concert Contest.
