Chris Turner

 

Welsh League First Section champion Llwydcoed has announced that former Cory assistant principal cornet player Chris Turner (centre) has taken over the Musical Director role with the band.

Musical direction

The League victory means that the band will perform in the top flight of the three legged Championship Section series in 2014, with Chris taking over the main musical direction with Nigel Seaman becoming Associate Conductor as he continues his role with current champion, Burry Port.

Moved forward

Chairman Kevin Johnson told 4BR: "The band wishes to thank Nigel for the way in which he has motivated and moved us forward during his tenure at the helm. We have yet again enjoyed an immensely successful year due to his direction."

He added: "Our thanks go to Nigel and we look forward to working with him in a new capacity from next year. We are also very excited at the prospect of working with Chris Turner and look forward to a very bright future."

Plaudits

As well as gaining a renowned reputation as one of the banding world’s finest ‘bumper-ups’, Chris Turner has also gained plaudits for his teaching and tutoring, as well as his emerging conducting career, which will also see him lead the Greater Gwent Youth Band in their annual course and concert in Newport in the next few weeks.

We are also very excited at the prospect of working with Chris Turner and look forward to a very bright futureBand Chairman, Kevin Johnson

Looking forward

He told 4BR: "I’m really grateful that the band has given me this opportunity and I look forward to continuing the excellent work Nigel has developed and will continue to add to with the band."
