David Childs on the podium as he returns to Flowers

Wednesday 12 April, 2017

Flowers Band has announced that David Childs is to return, this time with baton in hand rather than the euphonium on which he performed with great distinction until his resignation last year. A spokesman for the band told BB: "Flowers Band is pleased to announce that David Childs will be working with the band as Guest Conductor following on from Paul Holland’s recent decision to resign after a successful eight-year period with the band. The Trustees and Committee would like to thank Paul for his contribution to Flowers Band during this time and wish him well in his future endeavours. Paul’s final appearance as Musical Director is to be at Pershore Abbey on 22 April."
