Chris King is the Chair of the Music Commission of the European Brass Band Association, Treasurer of the Association of Brass Band Adjudicators, and has conducted the Friary Brass Band for over 18 years, bringing them into the top 20 bands in the world. Chris is now MD of the Wantage Band, one of the largest band organisations in the UK.

During Chris’ first career as a British Army Bandmaster, he conducted the Band of the Grenadier Guards, and helped form the original British Army Brass Band, which became the template for other Army brass bands, giving career opportunities for saxhorn players in the UK. He now works as a school leader, and Governor to other schools.

Chris has already had contest success with the Wantage Band, and he regularly guest conducts other bands, such as the Grimethorpe and Desford Colliery Bands, and loves nothing more than helping lower section bands to develop through workshops.

Chris has judged at many Regional Championships, a National Finals, Brass in Concert, Wychavon, and multiple Elite Sections at SIDDIS, in Norway.
