Outstanding

Speaking about his appointment, Director of Music, Prof Nicholas Childs told 4BR: "Adam is is already an outstanding performer with the talent, technique and tone to become yet another Black Dyke euphonium legend.

His grounded personality will ensure he fits in with the Black Dyke ethos whilst his ambition as a band player and soloist will ensure he joins our commitment to musical excellence. We welcome him to Queensbury."

It is a massive honour for me to sit in the same seat as so many of the euphonium legends I've admired for so longAdam Bokaris

Iconic band

Speaking about the appointment Adam added: "I'm so pleased to be joining the iconic ensemble in the brass band world. It is a massive honour for me to sit in the same seat as so many of the euphonium legends I've admired for so long.

I can't wait to get started with my first concert this week, where I'm scheduled to play a solo, and working alongside so many great players and Prof. Nicholas Childs."
