Young RNCM student Christian Dullea joins Michael Dodd on the euphonium bench at Grimethorpe in a series of new signings at the band. Originally hailing from South Wales, Christian is a product of the Greater Gwent schools system, and was formerly solo euphonium at the Regimental Band of the Royal Welsh and Rothwell Temperance before taking up the second euphonium seat at Grimethorpe.
Speaking of the appointment, Dr Robert Childs stated, “Christian came to the band highly recommended and has already displayed great maturity in his playing ability and general demeanour within the band. I look forward to seeing a highly successful partnership developing between he and Michael over the coming months”. Michael Dodd was equally complementary with the appointment and stated “Christian is a fine young player and I look forward to working closely with him at Grimethorpe”.
All at Grimethorpe are delighted to welcome Christian to the band, and wish his predecessor Philippe Schwartz many thanks for his many years of service to the band.
