The Malvern Hills District Brass Band is pleased to announce the appointment of our new M.D., Mr Christopher Small. Chris is 22 years old, studying Euphonium in his final year at the Birmingham Conservatoire under David Childs. Chris says ‘I’m delighted to be the new MD of the Malvern Hills District Brass Band. Having had recent conducting guidance at the Conservatoire from Ian Porthouse, this is a great opportunity for me. I’m very excited at the thought of taking the band to the forthcoming area and look forward to working with the band throughout 2012.’ Band members have thoroughly enjoyed working with Chris and we are looking forward to a productive, enjoyable and happy association with such a dynamic and enthusiastic young man.
