Derek Holland
Derek Holland has been the conductor of Borehamwood Brass since 1993.
Derek`s association with the world of brass bands goes back to 1970 when he joined Yiewsley and West Drayton Band as a boy of nine. He conducted his first concert in 1979 whilst studying Music and English at London University. He has worked extensively with both professional and amateur musicians and in addition to Borehamwood Brass, he is MD of Uxbridge Musical Theatre and Waltham St Lawrence Silver Band in Berkshire. He has previously held the same position with, amongst others, St Sebastian Wokingham Band, Yiewsley and West Drayton Band, Godalming Band and Julian Light Operatic Society in Ealing. He has also acted as MD to Bourne End Operatic Society, Guildford Light Orchestra, Southall Operatic Society and most recently, Hanwell & Ealing Operatic Society.
Derek is a primary school teacher by profession, and enjoys teaching the whole curriculum (emphatically not just Music!) He has a wide love of orchestral, operatic and show music, especially that of British composers, including some who are rather more obscure and a special affection for the traditional brass band repertoire, much of which is unduly neglected these days.

The appreciative audience enjoyed some superb solo playing and the conductor Derek Holland once again impressed everyone with his encyclopaedic knowledge of each of the pieces.
Borehamwood Proms - Borehamwood Brass, 7 Sept 2011 [cached]
This was their fifteenth appearance in the festival where they were conducted by their long standing Musical Director, Derek Holland.
In addition to this a number of local theatre groups provided a wide variety of entertainment accompanied by Derek Holland on piano. Of special distinction were the performances by members of Adria Jackson's vocal studio and by her junior choir from St Paul's Lutheran Church, where her husband David (also a member of Borehamwood Brass) is pastor. Ever since their arrival in Borehamwood in 2008, they have both contributed greatly to the cultural life of Borehamwood. Adria's recitals are keenly anticipated and she has constantly demonstrated the potential of young singers when they are encouraged to sing not only with tremendous enthusiasm but with attention to tone, style and diction.
