The band wishes Angharad all the very best for the future as she begins life in New Zealand having relocated there between Christmas and New Year. Please keep in touch Annie.
2013 was a great year for the band, with a win in the Third Section at the Welsh Regional Championships in March followed by an appearance at the National Finals in September. The band were also placed fourth at Ebbw Vale and second at Blaenavon. Three players won instrumentalist awards during the year: Owen Williams best instrumentalist at Swansea, John Ayres best Euphonium at Ebbw Vale and Rebekah Noons best instrumentalist at Blaenavon. The band also enjoyed a very successful annual concert with special thanks to our Guest Soloist James McLeod (principal Euphonium of the Leyland Band).
We now look forward to 2014 and our first appearance in the 2nd Section at the regionals since 1977.
The contest this year will be held in Merthyr, Wales.
The band are very pleased to have been placed second at Blaenavon in the third section yesterday! We would also like to congratulate our principal cornet player, Rebekah Naomi Noons, for achieving the best instrumentalist award – very well deserved!
