Ware Brass has announced the appointment of Michael Dawson as their new Musical Director.

The professional tuba player, conductor and teacher studied at the Royal Northern College of Music and has regularly performed with the Halle, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and BBC Philharmonic Orchestras. He has also been a member of Fairey and Brighouse & Rastrick Bands.

He continues to work as a professional tuba and sousaphone player for orchestras and jazz and 'trad' ensembles across the UK as well as for film and television.

Great fit

Band Chairperson, Lisa Huttlestone told 4BR: "We felt immediately that Michael was a great fit for the band.

He showed his excellent musicianship during his audition rehearsal and created an enjoyable and focused environment.

We are looking forward to getting to know Michael during the Christmas concert period and then knuckling down to some hard work together in preparation for the Regional contest in Stevenage in March".

Excited

In response Michael said: "I'm extremely excited to be working with Ware Brass and driving towards an exciting future with the band."

Michael's first concert with the band will be in concert later this month.
