Halifax Concert Band Message from John Underhill

As many of you know, I had some complications following my second colon cancer surgery last October, so I was only just getting back to work and other activities, including band, when Covid hit in March. Unfortunately, in July I learned that my cancer had spread, and as a result, I have decided to step back from work and other things so I can focus on my health. Last month I tendered my resignation as President and Director of the Halifax Concert Band Society, and I understand the Board has asked Kim Conway to serve as a Director until the AGM this Fall, as permitted by the Society’s bylaws.
Thank you all, especially my fellow volunteers on the HCB leadership team, for the support you have given me since we formed the Society in 2009. I have enjoyed music since I was very young, and the Halifax Concert Band has been a huge part of my life, so once rehearsals resume, I hope to continue as a playing member of the band as long as my health permits.
Yours in harmony and hope,
John Underhill
