Michael Bach to take Grimethorpe for Open 

Grimethorpe Colliery Band has announced that Swiss conductor Michael Bach will lead the band at the British Open Championship in September. Speaking about the appointment, Michael said, “It didn’t take me long to think about the invitation. To conduct one of the world’s most famous bands at the British Open is an opportunity you must take. I’m really looking forward to the challenge of working once again on Edward Gregson’s superb ‘World Rejoicing’ composition.” 
Grimethorpe Band Manager Richard Windle said, “We’re delighted that Michael has agreed to lead us at the British Open. We’re keen to work with the very best musical talent and we’re all excited to see what this new partnership brings. Michael has a great contesting record and artistic outlook and that is something that we hope will flourish with us further. It’s been a busy schedule but one we have enjoyed of late - from the Albert Hall and Lucern to King’s Lynn on the weekend. Michael will be joining us in August and will conduct the band at Venue Cymru in Llandudno just before leading our performance at the British Open the following week.”
