Black Dyke is delighted to announce Chris Binns as their new Principal Trombone.
Chris will take up his new position immediately after the Nationals at the Royal Albert Hall and after finishing his commitments with Milnrow Band.
Nicholas Childs commented "Everyone at Black Dyke is looking forward to Chris joining. Chris has just completed his first year at the Royal Northern College of Music, and I am sure he will have a great future.
Chris Binns said "It is a huge honour and I am really looking forward to starting my next musical chapter with the Black Dyke Band. I would like to thank Milnrow Band for six amazing years and all that they have helped me with during that time."
Black Dyke is also pleased to announce that Brett Baker will keep an association with the band and together with Paul Woodward will ensure Black Dyke and Chris's commitments at the Royal Northern College of Music can be met fully.
Brett Baker said "I am thrilled to remain part of the Black Dyke Band. This will allow me to carry on the work with the junior and youth trombone quartets, and develop an ambassadorial role within the structure of Black Dyke. I very much look forward to working with the very talented Chris Binns who I know from both the Yorkshire Youth Band and National Youth Band of Great Britain. Black Dyke has a very strong team which puts the band in a very enviable position.
Bass Trombonist Adrian Hirst said "I’m more than happy that Chris is joining. He did a fine job at Whit Friday and makes a great sound that blends in well.
Chris's first concert with Black Dyke will be Sunday 7th September at Symphony Hall
