The Coldstream Guards Band under the direction of Major Darren Wolfendale performed a stunning concert on Valentines Day in the Cadugon Hall in the presence of Lord and Lady Cadugon.

The concert was supported by the Buffet Group who also provided Fabrice Morelli the international acclaimed saxophonist who performed as guest soloist.

New commissions where also performed by the band from Peter Meechen and Rodney Newton both outstanding new additions to the band repertoire.. 

Profits from the concert went to support ABF - The Soldiers Charity.

A Gala concert from a Gala Band. Bravo the Coldstream Guards.

After a busy time traveling which included a successful visit to Georgia, USA it's good to spend a little time in the UK catching up with paperwork etc; I am very much looking forward to seeing many friers at the midwest conference in Chicago, USA later in December.

My visit to China in April  2013 has now been confirmed, just awaiting the schedule of engagements. This looks like being one of the highlights for 2013.

Just arrived back from a superb trip to the Staes where I conducted the Lehigh Wind Ensemble as guest conductor performing Elgar's Imperial March and Ellerb'd Royal Windsor Portrait. Great performance from the Band.
