It is with great sadness that I must report that Alan Mossford, Conductor Emeritus of Aylesbury Concert Band, died on 15th July.
Alan was our Director of Music from 1996 to 2006. Prior to that, as Squadron Leader Alan Mossford he had been Director of Music of RAF Central Band, his last posting in a distinguished career with the RAF Music Services which began in 1956. During his time with Aylesbury Band he worked tirelessly to develop the band to one which could win a gold medal at the Midlands Regional Concert Band Festival (www.ncbf.info) in 2006. Safe to say without him the band wouldn’t be what it is today.
