Black Dyke Band has announced a new appointment within the band.

Peter Graham has accepted a new position with the band as Creative Chair.

Professor Nicholas Childs, “We are delighted to welcome Peter to a more formal position at Queensbury and we look forward to hearing his ideas on taking Black Dyke

forward into new areas of musical development.

“This initiative coincides with our new recording of Peter’s music centred on his magnificent own choice European composition ‘The Triumph of Time’, to be released at the British Open this weekend”.

Peter added that he was looking forward to joining the band in his new position.

“Black Dyke has long been at the forefront in making innovative appointments, pioneering the band composer-in-residence title and subsequently developing one of the strongest creative teams around,” he said.

“The title Creative Chair presents an opportunity to explore and investigate a wide range of creative collaborations and to build upon the excellent work previously completed.

There are already exciting plans in progress and I look forward to being involved in bringing them to fruition.”
