Music Director


Our current Director of Music is Mr Rae Forrester who was appointed in 2007. Originally from Manchester in the UK, Mr Forrester is widely known in the Sydney area as a talented and enthusiastic Brass Conductor, and the band has progressed in leaps and bounds under his directorship.

Apart from Leichhardt Celebrity Brass, Rae conducts and tutors in a number of school bands, work which demands considerable time, patience and energy!

Previous music directors include Arthur Satchel OAM MC (founding MD), Mr Todd Wynyard and Mr Steve Freney.

When not conducting, Rae’s main instrument is the Euphonium.
