CENTRAL ENGLAND: Mike Wheeler's concert reviews from Nottingham and Derbyshire feature high profile artists on the UK circuit - often quite early on their tours.
Christopher Nichols is an American clarinettist who studied at the Boston Conservatory, Kansas State University and the University of Kansas. He served for more than ten years in the US Army Music Career program, giving performances in Austria, France, Germany and the United States.
