After working with the Flowers Band over the last few months, David is happy to announce that he has accepted the role of Principal Conductor with the West of England ensemble. David is no stranger to the Flowers organisation, having previously performed as Solo Euphonium with the band, and is now excited to return to lead Flowers in their forthcoming musical endeavours. He commented:

"It's been a pleasure to work with Flowers in recent months and I'm delighted to formalise an association with them. They have a nucleus of fine players, with a shared enthusiasm for making music and a great camaraderie within the group. With some exciting plans already in place, I look forward to the future, which will initially include developing associations with other conductors, composers and players to benefit the Flowers organisation."

David’s first official engagement with the band will be at the prestigious British Open Championships at Symphony Hall next month:

"I'm excited to be leading the band at the British Open. It's probably the banding world's most prestigious contest, and in Thierry Deleruyelle's 'Fraternity', I feel we have one of the best original brass band works of the modern era to perform."

The reaction within the band to David’s appointment has been very positive, with band spokesperson Tony Pemberton commenting:

"During the brief period together, the band has enjoyed fresh musical momentum and was keen to find a way for this to continue long-term. We recognise that as one of the world's leading brass soloists David's availability is limited, but we're extremely pleased he has accepted the bespoke role of Principal Conductor, and we look forward to benefiting from his musical direction and working with him on a regular basis."
