Colin Davis (1927 - )

When at Christ's Hospital School, near Horsham in Sussex Colin Davis studied as a clarinettist, but was intent on becoming a conductor. After struggles as a freelance conductor from 1949 to 1957, he gained a series of appointments with orchestras including the BBC Scottish Orchestra, the BBC Symphony Orchestra and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra. He has been associated with the London Symphony Orchestra for over 50 years, including over ten years as its principal conductor. He has also held the musical directorships of Sadler's Wells Opera and the Royal Opera House, where he was principal conductor for over fifteen years. His guest conductorships include the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Dresden Staatskapelle, among many others.

In 1967 when Sir Malcolm Sargent suffering from cancer could not continue conducting the Henry Wood Proms, Colin Davis took over with enthusiastic support from Sargent's "beloved promenaders". Davis quickly became a favourite with them.

The years 1967-71 when Colin was in charge of the BBC Symphony Orchestra was a golden age for the promenaders. The rapport between audience, conductor and players was something long lost. It extended beyond the concerts and meeting in the pub to Colin turning up at a wedding of two promenaders with half the orchestra to play for them much to the surprise of the happy couple!
