George Weldon (5 June 1908, Chichester, England – 17 August 1963, South Africa) was an English conductor.Weldon was the son of Major F H Weldon of the Sherwood Foresters.[1] He was educated at Sherborne School and the Royal College of Music. He studied conducting with Malcolm Sargent[2] and Aylmer Buesst.[3] In 1943, at 36 years of age, he became the conductor of the City of Birmingham Orchestra in succession to Leslie Heward. He was dismissed in 1950, following unsubstantiated rumours that he was having an affair with Ruth Gipps, choirmaster of the Birmingham orchestra's chorus.[4] It was announced that Weldon would be replaced by Rudolf Schwarz; according to Gipps, Weldon resigned before he could be dismissed.[5]In 1952 Weldon became assistant to Sir John Barbirolli at the Hallé Orchestra and remained in that position until his death. In 1955 and 1956 he also conducted the Sadler's Wells Ballet.[1] He became well known for his love of sports cars.[1] While in Manchester, Weldon took charge of the Hallé summer seasons of promenade concerts, and many industrial concerts around the north of England. He frequently conducted in London and abroad, made broadcasts and many records.
