Published in Band News on 2014-04-10 by Golcar Band
Charles Hindmarsh has been appointed as the New Musical Director for Golcar Band and we are delighted.
Charles is originally from Harrogate and began his musical career playing the violin in orchestras and later played the Euphonium, Baritone, and Eb Tuba in concert and brass bands.
After studying music at University, he went on to play for a number of brass bands in the Yorkshire area including Harrogate Band, The Yorkshire Evening Post Band, Lindley Band and most recently, Garforth Brass.
Charles is a well-respected Conductor in Yorkshire and as well as conducting Golcar Band he also conducts Garforth Jubillee Brass Band and Summer Bridge and Dacre Silver Band.
As well as playing conventional instruments, Charles is also known as
‘The Yorkshire Musical Saw Player’ and plays the ‘musical saw’ in a range of events across the country and beyond.
Charles and the band are working hard on our summer programme and building the band up. Charles is so enthusiastic, talented and kind that the standard of the band has improved tremendously over the few weeks Charles has been with us.
Our band just needs some tutti cornets, basses, bass trombone and 2nd baritone to complete our line up. See our website for more details www.golcarband.co.uk
