12/08/2009 - Geoff Whitham

I’m sure most of you will know by now, the sad news that Geoff Whitham sadly passed away in July. Supporters of the band will recall his visits to the island over the last 3 years to join us for our annual subscription concerts. Geoff was an inspiration to us all and will be sadly missed, both by the Castletown Metropolitan Silver Band and by the brass band world in general.

Musical Director Rodney Evans and four band members represented the band at Halifax Parish Church for Geoff’s funeral. The funeral, whilst a sad occasion, was in many respects a concert to celebrate Geoff’s life. Kings of Brass provided some evocative and positively moving music, and led the hymn singing.

Our thoughts are with Geoff’s family at this time.
