BAND MANAGEMENT

The Cortland Old Timers Band is managed by its members, on a volunteer basis.

CONDUCTOR/MUSIC DIRECTOR - Edward O’Rourke - was chosen by the membership in late 2011 to provide the musical leadership for the organization in 2012 and beyond. As principal musician and conductor, the Music Director will devote the majority of his efforts to the technical and musical performance of the band, relying on the band’s functional committees for administrative support. The responsibilities of the Music Director position are defined in detail in the official Band Charter. The Music Director’s participation in membership meetings and meetings of the Executive Board shall be in an advisory capacity only.

ASSOCIATE CONDUCTOR - Michael Poole - was appointed as Associate Conductor in 2012 to assist the Music Director in conducting and rehearsing the Band. In this role, the associate conductor will gain experience and confidence, while being mentored by the Music Director for advice, suggestions and observation. This relationship will evolve and grow, as with their confidence in each other. This position carries no additional voting privileges.
