Tricia Gaskell

Trish initially trained as an orchestral musician, playing flute and piccolo. Before she was 18 years old she was awarded qualifications in performance and teaching. Playing for her first musical at eleven years old, she took over as Musical Director for youth shows from the age of 14 years. After studying Law in Birmingham and gaining LLB and LLM degrees, Trish returned to the Merseyside area in 1989, playing for musical theatre as an accompanist and as an orchestral musician in various theatres across the North West, from the Royal Exchange in Manchester to the Liverpool Empire. During this time, after moving to North Wales in 1994, she also acted as MD for various local groups before commencing her current relationship with BOST in 1995.

Primarily, now, Trish works with BOST and has been MD for our main productions at the Liverpool Empire, Royal Court and Floral Pavilion Theatres as well as for Autumn and Christmas Concerts where she has conducted our guest bands the Haydock Band and Northop Silver Band, and also special charity concerts at The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Hall. In the annual NODA North West Awards Trish was voted Best Musical Director in 2004 for “Annie”, and was again nominated in 2009 for “The Scarlet Pimpernel”. By day Trish works as a solicitor for the NHS, and lives with her husband plus a motley assortment of horses, dogs, cats, sheep and turkeys on a smallholding near Abergele.
