2008 see our 'concert' band hit its 25th anniversary.
We really want to do some positive advertsing and promoting of the band in this year and wondered if anyone had ideas.
We have had bad press in the past from ex-members with a grudge, who have unfortunately been teachers doing the periapatetic(sp) rounds. A current rumour going round is that we are unable to hold on to members which infact is incorrect as about 50% of the band have been involved for over 10 yrs!
I have been with the band 13yrs, the conductor 17 years, and a couple of other players around 11yrs so there is probably over 100 yrs experience combined within the band which might be a good promoting point.
Would a press release be any use or will the locals find it 'non' news?
Any ideas would be well recieved.
