Fulham Brass Band pay tribute to this fine composer.

Wilfred Heaton (1918 – 2000) composer, conductor and teacher, was born in Sheffield on 2 December 1918, the younger of two children of John, a cutler, and Miriam Heaton. The Heaton family were members of the Sheffield Park Corps of The Salvation Army. John Heaton was the bandmaster and his wife had a fine singing voice. It was natural therefore for young Wilfred’s musical talents to be nurtured through The Salvation Army. He began piano lessons at the age of eight and soon after was learning the cornet and composing music of his own. His long life in music was underpinned by wide-ranging interests in the arts, in philosophy, and by his strong religious background and faith.

Tom Nielsen is the winner of the BBC Radio 2 Brass Award 2018
