Artist Description: 

Timothy Reynish studied horn and was a music scholar at Cambridge, working under Raymond Leppard and Sir David Willcocks. He held principal horn positions with the Northern Sinfonia, Sadler's Wells Opera (now ENO) and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. A prize winner in the Mitropoulos International Conducting Competition in New York, he has conducted concerts with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, the Hallé and the London Symphony Orchestra.

In 1975 he was invited by Sir Charles Groves to become tutor for the Postgraduate Conducting Course at RNCM; two years later he succeeded Philip Jones as Head of School of Wind and Percussion, a post he retired from after over a quarter of a century.

He was President of the World Association for Symphonic Bands and Ensembles from 2001 to 2002. In 2005 he assumed the post of Senior Professor in Woodwind and Brass at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and conducted the Wind Ensemble in a gala concert celebrating the 125th anniversary of the founding of the Guildhall.

Timothy was awarded a Churchill Travelling Fellowship in 1982 which enabled him to study the development and repertoire of the American symphonic wind band movement. In the past two decades he developed the wind orchestra and ensemble of the RNCM to become recognized as one of the best in the world.
