Adrian Spillett joins Birmingham Conservatoire as Head of Percussion

Adrian Spillett

Birmingham Conservatoire, part of Birmingham City University, has welcomed Adrian Spillett as the new Head of Percussion.

For over 10 years Adrian has worked with Birmingham Contemporary Music Group and in 2011 Adrian joined the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO), where he holds the position of Section Leader of Percussion.

Adrian has been a regular player with the Colin Currie Group and John Wilson Orchestra and recently made his debut with the World Orchestra for Peace.

Commenting on his new role, Adrian said: “I’m thrilled to be appointed Head of Percussion at Birmingham Conservatoire. It is such an exciting opportunity. Living and working in the Midlands, I’ve always strongly believed it’s the perfect central hub for many a percussionist and I am keen to strengthen the links with all of the professional outfits which work in the area and beyond.

“I aim to expand the department and its programme to compete with the rest of the country’s conservatoires as a premier home for percussion training”, added Adrian.
