About David Allum
Born July 1942 , in Birmingham, England, I went to Moseley Grammar School in Birmingham 1952-1960. At the age of 11, I began to learn to play the violin and came on leaps and bounds under the skillful guidance of Gilbert Shufflebottom who was lead Viola in the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra . In 1958 I played first violin in the Midland Youth Orchestra under Blyth Major and studied at the Birmingham School of Music under Hannah Wisheart until 1962 when my family moved to North Wales. Also in 1958 onwards I ran a small band playing country and square dance music at various locations throughout the West Midlands. The band was called the Cole River Valley Group .
I eventually came to live in Bangor, and in 1968 I joined Bangor University Symphony Orchestra, under the conductor John Hywel, and played first violin there for 34 years. I began composing music about the year 2000 when I wrote the piece titled Caernarfon Bay and others. In 2010 my work Lament at the Gate of Teheran which is scored for full Symphony Orchestra , was given its first public performance which was well received by the audience who clapped for a good five minutes.
