We are delight to announce that Graham has been appointed Artistic Director and Conductor of the Russian Opera Gala which will take place at London's Cadogan Hall on 29th April 2018.

Dedicated to Dmitri Hvorostovsky and Elena Obraztsova.

Star guest performers – soloists from the Royal Opera House, Mariinsky Opera, St Petersburg, the Bolshoi, Moscow – sing popular International arias, songs, and romances by famous composers, as well as classical folk songs, in this delightful show for music lovers.

Brentwood Imperial Youth Band Christmas Concert

What an outstanding Christmas Concert by the Brentwood Imperial Youth Band. Including the Corps of Drums they had 92 on parade. What an incredible effort and superb standard.
Well done one and all. I feel very proud and privileged to be your Band President.

Adonia Cruise

What a great time I had on the Adonia as a guest speaker. Lovely ship and a great team with very friendly passengers. 

French Foreign Legion; Héros CD

We are very happy with the outcome of this superb CD. Lots of activity on Amazon where it is now No8 in the Amazon chart. Great news.

Foreign Legion CD hit

Breaking News; 
The French Foreign Legion CD Héros is No1 in the French Classical Charts and No 20 in the French Pop charts. Congratulations to Émile Lardeux and the Band.
Graham says; 
"It was an honour and a pleasure working on this project with such a wonderful Band. The Album sounds superb and I'm sure it will be a big hit, not only in France but around the world. The CD is released in the UK 18 June 2013".

Zurich Tattoo Production meeting

I am currently in Zurich working on the fine details of the Zurich Tattoo ahead of the press launch next week 12 May. All very exciting.

Adjudicating in Cornwall

Delighted to be invited by Helston Town Band to Adjudicate their 54th Annual Solo & Quartet Contest. I am sure it will be a great day for all and I am really looking forward to visiting Cornwall once again.

Stunning Concert by the Coldstream Guards

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.


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.

Graham at Lehigh

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.
