Our Communications Officer is Michelle Forsyth.
Michelle joined our training band in 2007 playing flute, and progressed to the Senior Band in 2009. Shortly thereafter she began playing piccolo, and later shuffled around on clarinet, bass clarinet and even the oversized baritone saxophone.
After being the band’s librarian for four years, in November 2013 Michelle was appointed as the band’s Assistant Musical Director. In 2016 she decided it was time for a change of pace and stepped down to take on the role of publicity officer. In 2020 she took up the newly created role of Communications Officer.
When Michelle isn’t playing in the Werribee Concert Band she works at Australia’s finest health insurance provider. She’s mad for a bit of frisbee and likes to reminisce of what would have been a stellar career in the AFLW, except for having the knees of a 70 year old.
