I am pleased to announce that as of January 1st I have been appointed as the musical director of Cathays Brass. The ensemble is a newly formed brass band in the heart of Cardiff with a focus on community music-making and engagement within their local area. Following a semester leading the ensemble's rehearsals and performances I am very happy to accept the official position of MD.
My first public appearance with the band will be on the 24th January in our first 'Concert In A Day' challenge. We will be joined by the Cardiff University Brass Band and other players from the Cardiff area and challenge ourselves to put together a full concert in just one day. The music will remain a tightly guarded secret until rehearsals begin that morning although we can announce that Matt Rowe, principal euphonium with the Tongwynlais Band, will be joining us as a guest soloist.
I very much look forward to my time with Cathays Brass and the exciting projects we have lined up for the coming months.
