Christian Jenkins

Born in the Rhondda in 1975, Christian completed his education at the University of Wales Cardiff, obtaining a doctorate in Physics. He is currently a senior engineer at an electronics company in Newport.

Christian's association with brass bands began at the age of 11 under the guidance of Ieuan Morgan at Treorchy Comprehensive School. Since that time, he has held solo Baritone positions for both the Mid Glamorgan Youth Brass Band and the National Youth Brass Band of Wales.

Christian is rapidly making a mark as one of a talented new generation of arrangers of music for brass band. At the beginning of 2004 came an invitation to take up the position of arranger-in-residence with the Buy As You View Band, widely regarded as one of the finest in Britain. Recent arranging highlights have included projects for David Childs, Phantom of the Opera star, Peter Karrie and the opening weekend of the Wales Millennium Centre.

In the little spare time that he has, Christian enjoys hill walking, and serves as a committee member of the Glamorgan Ornithological Society.
