Stavanger Brass Band, the reigning Norwegian National Champion, has announced the election of a new Chairman and Board Leader.

Anders Rydberg (above) was elected to the role at their recent Annual General Meeting, and takes over from the experienced Ulf Rosenberg.

Respected

Anders is a well known figure within the Norwegian movement, both as a respected percussionist with the band and in heading the committee that organises the Siddis Championships.

Speaking about his appointment, Anders told 4BR: "It is with great humility that I take on this important role.

I want to thank Ulf Rosenberg for everything he has done as a chairman for the past decade and more, and we are all greatly reassured that he will continue to play a hugely important role as part of the board."

We are very much looking forward to the upcoming season, when things get back towards normality following the relaxing of COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines."
