It is with great sadness that we have been informed that Guy Woolfenden passed away peacefully on the afternoon of Friday 15 April.
We in BSW were only playing one of Guy’s pieces yesterday in rehearsal, unaware that the great man was no longer with us.
Guy’s contribution to the world of music is so significant, that this announcement is not the time to detail it, however we all relished in his music and he was a terrific Patron of Birmingham Symphonic Winds, always happy to give advice and support. We are so fortunate that Guy worked with us on a regular basis and wrote a number of wonderful works for the orchestra.
We all have lost a true gentleman and a person who gave so much of his talent and time for us in the world of music.
We pass on our thoughts and support to Guy’s wife Jane and her family at this time.
