Black Dyke welcomes new Eb Tuba talent

Black Dyke Band is delighted to welcome Charlie Cresswell to the ranks of its Tuba section. Charlie is a 1st year student at the Royal Northern College of Music and is studying under the tutelage of his Professor, Brian Kingsley from Opera North.

Music Director Nicholas Childs comments that “Charlie is an excellent musician and has already assisted the band on a number of previous engagements, including recordings. He was therefore an obvious choice when a regular position became available.”

Charlie’s enthusiasm for this new opportunity is clear. When we spoke to him he talked about the honour of playing with Black Dyke Band and the terrific opportunity to sit between two of the finest Tuba players in the business, namely Gavin Saynor and Matthew Routley.
