Mark Gateshill and the ..., 15 July 2013 [cached]
Mark Gateshill and the orchestra managed from the first note to capture the images with assured yet sensitive brush strokes of sound.
His youthful yet mature virtuosity was well served by Gateshill and his players with brooding, atmosphere and martial impetus when required.
New orchestral sounds from Saxophone, Euphonium etc. were introduced where necessary and a general tautness of control from Mark Gateshill contributed to the general effectiveness of the performance.
The conductor, Mark Gateshill set the tempo exactly right and the eerily mystical sounds sent the audience soaring from the mundane to the celestial.
Frome is indeed fortunate to have musicians of such calibre and is doubly lucky to have the services of Lukas Hank, Mark Gateshill and Stephen Marquiss.
Many of the same faces were to be seen four nights later, when our string players teamed up with the Bath Philharmonia to play Vaughan Williams' Concerto Grosso under the direction of our musical director Mark Gateshill. Here is Mark in the performance:

Mark Gateshill, Conductor
Mark was born and brought up in South London where he started studying violin with Helen and Douglas Paterson at the age of ten. From London his family moved to Surrey where he played for several area youth orchestras including Surrey County Youth Orchestra. He then went on to study Music at the University of Exeter where he led both the Symphony and Chamber Orchestras, it was through these ensembles that he was given the opportunity to start conducting on a regular basis - including conducting the Chamber Orchestra on their tour of Estonia. On graduating, Mark took up a post as a Graduate Music Assistant at Wells Cathedral School for two years.
Mark is currently Head of Strings at Bristol Cathedral Choir School where he teaches violin, coaches chamber music and conducts the String Orchestra. He also conducts the county youth orchestra for North Somerset Music Service, the North Somerset Sinfonia.
Mark is also a member of the funky horn, violin and oboe trio Ensemble3, who specialise in outreach and community based projects. In September 2009 Mark took up conducting posts with Frome Symphony and Winscombe Orchestra. This is all combined with playing regularly throughout the region as a freelance violinist.
