Bandmaster Lindsi Gawley
Lindsi grew up playing the cornet, and has been with the Whitby Brass Band since 2005. A flugelhorn player at heart, she holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from York University with Specialized Honours in Music, a Bachelor of Education, and now works as a middle school band teacher at George B. Little Public School in Scarborough.

Lindsi has a vast background in music; both performing as a soloist and a conductor. This experience ranges from conducting the Governor General's Horse Guards military band on parade to performing as a soloist in faraway places such as the Menin Gate in Belgium and Mount Sorrel in France. In 2012 Lindsi was the first military musician in Canada to receive the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal, and in 2014 performed as a soloist with the Hannaford Street Silver Band after winning their annual Slow Melody Contest.

She is thankful for the musical opportunities that her experience has provided her. Highlights have been performing as a soloist at Roy Thompson Hall, and playing trumpet for members of the Royal Family; including the Queen of England, Prince William, Kate Middleton, and Prince Harry. That being said, her favourite place to perform and conduct by far is with the Whitby Brass Band. Lindsi is excited for the opportunity to work with such a dedicated group of musicians, and is honoured to lead the band that she grew up in.
