Childs, David

David Childs studied at the Royal Northern College of Music and at the Royal welsh College of Music and Drama, where he gained a Masters degree with distinction in 2004.

He has already emerged as one of the finest brass soloists in the world today, having appeared as soloist with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Royal Philharmonic, BBC Concert Orchestra, Sinfonia Cymru and BBC Philharmonic; given concerto performances at the BBC Proms, Cheltenham Festival, Harrogate International Festival, Welsh Proms and New York Festival; performed solo recitals at the Wigmore Hall, Purcell Room, Bridgewater Hall and London’s Royal Albert Hall; and regularly recorded as a solo artist for radio, television and commercial disc.

Inspired by his father Robert, David began playing the euphonium at an early age. Today he is in great demand as soloist and educator touring regularly throughout Europe, Australia, the Middle East, Japan, Hong Kong, and the USA. In 2010 he made his debut in New York performing Karl Jenkins’ Concerto for Euphonium and Orchestra at the prestigious Carnegie Hall. In 2011, he gave the UK premiere of Christian Lindberg’s Euphonium Concerto with the RWCMD Chamber Orchestra.

David is enjoying leading the way for a new generation of euphonium players worldwide, cementing a place for his instrument as a genuine solo voice within the classical world of music. For further information visit
