About the composer:

I studied Tuba (under George Reynolds of the London Symphony Orchestra and Michael Clack M.B.E) and conducting at Colchester Institute. I am newly retired from a long career as Head of Music at South Bromsgrove High School. With my family now grown up, and time on my hands, I have started pursuing my passion for composition; having spent a lifetime encouraging students to do the same.     Chris Cobon. B.A(Hons), P.G.C.E., A.L.C.M
