NICHOLAS CHILDS

Heralded as a leading figure in the worldwide brass community, Nicholas Childs has rightfully achieved the highest international reputation as a performer, teacher/clinician, conductor, interpreter and advocate of new music, and producer of pace-setting recordings. Initial success came as a euphonium soloist and partner with his talented brother, Robert Childs, who together have toured the world as The Childs Brothers, performing in many of the world’s most famous concert halls with the most prestigious bands and orchestras. Taking up the baton as a brass band conductor, Nicholas Childs has had phenomenal success with many brass bands, including highly acclaimed regional and national championships. His current tenure as Principal Conductor and Music Director of the famous Black Dyke Band has been marked not only with continued contest success, but with a series of innovative concerts, world premières and recordings of major works for brass band with a variety of soloists and musical combinations. He continues his advocacy of new music within the outstanding catalogue of brass and wind band recordings he has recorded and produced with his award-winning firm, Doyen Recordings. Not content with these activities, he is in great demand as a teacher, clinician, and consultant throughout the academic community. Further honours have come with his appointment as Artistic Director of the National Children’s Brass Band of Great Britain, and Founder and Artistic Director of the Yorkshire Youth Brass Band.

In recent years Childs has given the premières with Black Dyke Band of many new works by leading British composers and, with the Band, has featured in some of the most recognized festivals, including the Harrogate International Festival, Chichester, Newbury, Cheltenham, Kings Lynn, and City of London, as well as Gala Concerts at the National Brass Band Championships in London’s Royal Albert Hall. As one of the world’s most recognised masters of the euphonium and brass specialist, he has performed and taught throughout the United Kingdom, Europe, Australia, Africa, the Far East, Canada, and the United States. He has appeared with such groups as the BBC Philharmonic, Hallé Orchestra, United States Marine Band (“The President’s Own”), the London Symphony Brass, and Canadian Brass. In addition, he has been featured with nearly every major brass band throughout the world and many wind bands, especially in university settings in the United States, where he has been equally acclaimed for his teaching and clinic work. Nicholas Childs holds a doctorate from the University of Salford and an honorary doctorate from Leeds Metropolitan University, in addition to other awards and honours.
