    Brass players required

    The London City Wind Orchestra is a new up and coming adult wind orchestra that rehearse in the centre of London. As we are a new orchestra, our places are not complete as of yet.
    We require brass players to complete the ensemble, we have a full woodwind section and so far one trumpet, a french horn and a trombone. The orchestra requires: Two more trumpets, two more trombones, another french horn or tenor horn, Euphoniums, and Tubas and percussionists.

    We have a concert schedualed for the first week in June and we really need a full ensemble before playing to the public.

    If you are interested please contact Mr Shea Lolin -

    Musical director

    [​IMG]Shea Lolin is emerging as one of London’s most dynamic and daring conductors. Shea started his musical career on the clarinet, studying at the Colchester Institute School of Music with Charles Hine and Angela Fussell for performance, Alan Bullard for composition and Christopher Phelps for conducting. While at ‘The Institute’, Shea won the Brookes Trophy for Woodwind Ensembles, the Harvey Benham Cup for Mixed Ensembles and the John Myatt Cup for Solo Woodwind.
    Shea is conductor of the Bloomsbury Woodwind Ensemble, City Wind Orchestra and the East London Clarinet Choir and has given rapturous performances of the core repertoire, working with soloists such as Anna Hashimoto and Victoria Soames Samek whilst appearing at the Bloomsbury, Newham Music Month and Newham Music and Dance festivals. Internationally Shea has worked with composer Frances Reneau in a project ‘We are Belize’, celebrating twenty-five years of independence.
    Shea also holds down regular liturgical music commitments as director of music and organist for the churches of St. Stephens and St. Nicholas’ in Manor Park as well as St. Michael and All Angels, Gidea Park. In 2007, Shea organised and conducted a ‘Songs of Praise’ service as part of the Newham Music and Dance Festival, bringing live music to one of London’s poorest boroughs.
    In conducting unusually scored ensembles, Shea has adapted a skill for arranging symphonies, concertos and chamber music for interest in programming of concerts. He is passionate about new music and has secured funding for new compositions from all of the major awarding bodies in the UK, most recently with the ‘Adopt-A-Composer’ scheme, working with composer Christopher Hussey.

    Please get in contact so we can make this wind orchestra successful.
    All interest is welcome.
