(Principal Cornet with the Black Dyke Band)

In Concert with Hitchin Band

7:30pm, Saturday 9th May 2020 - St Mary's Church, Hitchin

Richard Marshall has been described by internationally acclaimed maestro Elgar Howarth as:

"The most outstanding cornet player
this country has ever produced"

Richard is currently Principal Cornet of the world famous Black Dyke Band, a position that is heralded as the “hottest seat in banding.” Previously Principal Cornet for ten years with the Grimethorpe Colliery Band, Richard fulfilled his childhood ambition and followed in the footsteps of some of his cornet heroes and moved to the Queensbury based Black Dyke Band in January 2006.

As a respected and devoted teacher, Richard is a cornet tutor at the Royal Northern College of Music, Birmingham Conservatoire and Salford University. He is a regular tutor on the International Brass Band Summer School, the National Children’s Brass Band of Great Britain and the Yorkshire Youth Brass Band.

Richard has released to date five solo recordings. The Debutante (1999), Blaze (2005), Eminence (2007), The Cornet Heritage Collection Volume 1 (2010) and Volume 2 (2013) all of which have been received with world-wide acclaim, with Blaze and Eminence being awarded the title Solo CD of the Year.

As a performer Richard has travelled to Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Hong Kong, Canada, America and several European countries. He has performed in many iconic concert venues such as Sydney Opera House and New York’s Carnegie Hall.

Richard is a Besson Artist and Clinician who solely performs on the Prestige Cornet and RM1 Signature cornet mouthpiece.

We are delighted that Richard has agreed to perform as a guest soloist with Hitchin Band, your local Championship Section brass band.
