Mr. Dave Fullerton
Dave Fullerton is recently retired from a 37 year career as a Secondary School Music Director in the B. C. Lower Mainland. Throughout his career he has conducted Concert Bands, Jazz Bands, Jazz Combos, Concert Choirs and Vocal Jazz Ensembles that have consistently achieved Gold Award standing at major music festivals at local, national and international events. After retiring in 2012 he has kept his skills and professional associations fresh serving as a clinician and an adjudicator.
He has successful experiences as the Music Director of the “South Fraser Community Concert Band” for 11 years and Director of the “Third Stage Big Band” (now named “the Mighty Fraser Big Band”) for 13 years.
“ I am both honored and thrilled to have been chosen to be the next Musical Director of the Nanaimo Concert Band. Since moving to the Island several years ago, I have attended all of the NCB concerts and have seen, first hand, the large and dedicated audiences that this band has captured with their music. I have come to understand well that this fine ensemble, under the Direction of Maestro Gerry Klaassen for the past 22 years, has sustained a tradition of musical excellence and public service that stems from its beginnings in 1872. As their new Director, I pledge to honor and serve this legacy. “
