Our Musical Director and founder is Elaine Rees


As senior administrator for Coventry City Council's adult learning department, Elaine comes into contact with people from all walks of life.

Highly respected and with many musical and educational honours after her name, she remains a people person and is totally committed to Bedworth Concert Band.

Having got together a few Musicians in 2006 for an informal concert, Bedworth Concert Band was created and she has been responsible ever since!!

Known for her dry wit and encouraging players to tap feet regardless of her baton, she has never the less moulded a band that will "put on a good show".

Her heart beats as erratically as some time signatures, especially during rehearsals, but she has turned a bunch of keen players into a band that can entertain.

Husband Jeff is a very accomplished cornet player with the band, and daughter Bethan is a very promising young musician.
