    Steve will take responsibility for the overall musical direction and conduct at contests and some concerts, but will share regular rehearsals with David Hamilton who will act as Resident Conductor.

    David joined Camborne on Eb tuba in 2011 shortly after moving from his native Scotland to his current job as Music Performance Coordinator and Brass Instructor at Humphry Davy School in Penzance.

    Foray

    His first foray into conducting came in 2005 at the NABBC Conductors Competition where he won the Scottish final. He has held a variety of positions with brass bands, choirs and musical theatre groups in Scotland and more recently in Cornwall.

    Excellent appointment. If he's travelling by train, I hope you don't rehearse on Wednesdays...
