Sunday Bandstand 5 September 2021

Trevor Walmsley DFC was born in Cheshire and followed his father into the Salvation Army playing the cornet. He joined Yorkshire Imperial Band in 1965 and during his time the band had a growing reputation both on the concert stage and the contest platform. The pinnacle of his 11 years at Imps was winning the 1970 and 1971 British Open Championships at Belle Vue. He also conducted the band to a triple success at the Edinburgh Festival Invitation Contest together with regional successes at both regional and national contests.

He left Imps in 1976 to replace Derek Garside as Professional Musical Director at CWS (Manchester) Band and was also a representative for Boosey and Hawkes on the instrumental side. During his career, he was also the resident conductor of both Brighouse and Rastrick and Black Dyke.

He was a quiet man but one who had the knack of skilful man management – for a period of six years the band personnel at Imps remained unchanged – a team that breathed together.

He was awarded the DFC and Bar during the Second World War.  He died in June 1998 aged 76 years.
