Denis Wick unveils new artist

Monday 8 May, 2017

Denis Wick Products has announced that Misa Mead is to become a Denis Wick Artist.

Speaking to BB on behalf of the company, Stephen Wick commented: "Misa is an internationally-renowned euphonium soloist and her performing career takes her all around the world. She has long favoured Denis Wick mouthpieces and is already a wonderful advocate for them. Her solo career has been taking off in recent years and we look forward to working closely with Misa in the future.

"She has won many international accolades, including the unanimous Gold Medal at the European Solo Competition for Young Soloists in Luxembourg 2011, and many awards in her native Japan. She has appeared at Tubamania Festivals in Thailand and at the South West Region Tuba Euphonium Conference (SWRTEC).

"As well as other performing commitments, Misa  will be appearing from 7-10 June at the International Women's Brass Conference, New Jersey, and from 17-23 August in solo concerts in China. She will be touring the USA from 5-18 December with her husband Steven. Watch out for their touring schedule!"
