Busy Times

The Band has has a busy time of late with a good balance of concerts and contest appearances including the Welsh Open in February and the Regional Contest held at the Brangwyn Hall Swansea. The concert scene has been a story of renewed and continued partnerships, with the band taking to their home stage at Parc & Dare Hall for the Annual Good Friday Concert with longstanding partner Treorchy Male Choir, now in its 51st Year! The beginning of May saw the band take to the stage with the Richard Williams Singers at their 50th Anniversary celebration concert after a break of a couple of years, but what a return and with an array of top class talent entertaining a full appreciative audience at Parc & Dare.

If you missed either concert then you 've missed a treat, so look out for the band's next engagement!
