Welcome to Westmorland Orchestra

We rehearse and perform in Kendal, in the North West of England, on the southern edge of the Lake District.

Gideon Brooks

Playing Hummel's Trumpet Concerto on 18th March 2017

Gideon is currently studying at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama as a Postgraduate student under the tutelage of Paul Beniston and Will O’ Sullivan. After receiving scholarships from Guildhall, Royal College of Music and the Royal Academy of Music, he is now enjoying London life whilst at Guildhall. Previously Gideon studied with Andrew Everton at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama where he performed as principal trumpet with every major college ensemble and held an orchestral placement with the Welsh National Opera for two years.

Outside of college life, Gideon has worked with professional orchestras including the English National Ballet, Welsh National Opera, Sinfonia Cymru and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales with whom he has recorded and performed live with on BBC Radio 3. As well as performing in most of the country’s largest concert halls, he has played on Radio and Television broadcasts by BBC, BBC Proms, ITV, Sky Arts Television and S4C.

He was also a member of the National Youth Wind Orchestra of Great Britain and CBSO Youth Orchestra Academy and appeared as a soloist with the Cambrian Orchestra performing Shostakovich's Concerto for Piano, Trumpet and Strings. Gideon also played for HRH The Queen on her visit to the Barbican in 2012 and on two occasions for HRH The Prince of Wales at Buckingham Palace.

Gideon is a recipient of the Help Musicians UK Postgraduate Award and is very grateful to Help Musicians UK, the Guildhall School Trust and the Westdene Fund for generously supporting his studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
