A Festival, Not a Competition
What Students Get Out of NCBF
Why Band Leaders Get Involved
Tony Veal (1938 – 2018)
It is with great sadness that we record the death of Tony Veal who passed away on Thursday 13 September. Tony was the Chairman of NCBF until May this year, when he stepped down because of ill health to become Life President.
Tony was by nature a quiet gentleman who gave his time and skill over many decades to music education (he was Head of the Music Service for Solihull Borough Council) and in particular to the organisation of both BASBWE and NCBF. He conducted many community bands in the Midlands and will be remembered for his supportive manner and love of discovering new music for bands.
