Bristol Ensemble’s board of trustees is delighted to welcome two new members: Charlie Wyld has been appointed as Chair, and Daniella Radice has joined as a trustee.
Charlie Wyld was a partner in solicitors Burges Salmon, and has recently been High Sheriff of Bristol (2019-20) and Chair of trustees at St George’s Bristol (2013-18). He has also recently joined the board of Young Bristol. He plays the oboe – being a pupil of our very own Imogen Triner – and sings with the Exultate Singers. He knows Bristol Ensemble well and has a wealth of experience and expertise that will be enormously valuable as we develop the orchestra and our Preludes education arm over the next few years.
Daniella Radice has a background in environmental and community issues in Bristol. A former councillor and Assistant Mayor (with responsibility for neighbourhoods), she is now field organiser for the Green Party of England and Wales, and is involved in projects working with children with learning disabilities. She plays violin in the Westbury Park Orchestra, and is also a keen singer. Her skills and enthusiasm will be particularly helpful as we develop and expand Preludes.
Charlie and Daniella join the existing trustees – Simon Cook, Jerry Cowhig, Andrew Gustar, Caroline Levett and Mark Tooley – for what promises to be an exciting period for the Bristol Ensemble.
