George Weldon And The City Of Birmingham Symphony Orcheshtra – DX 1248 - 78 RPM

George Weldon (5 June 1908, in Chichester, England – 17 August 1963, in South Africa) was an English conductor. Weldon was the son of Major F H Weldon of the Sherwood Foresters. He was educated at Sherborne School and the Royal College of Music. He studied conducting with Malcolm Sargent and Aylmer Buesst. 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. It was announced that Weldon would be replaced by Rudolf Schwarz; according to Gipps, Weldon resigned before he could be dismissed.

The City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO) is a British orchestra based in Birmingham, England. Its principal concert venue is Symphony Hall, Birmingham. The CBSO's current music director is Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, with the 2016-2017 season. The CBSO's current chief executive, appointed in 1999, is Stephen Maddock.
