    If you are in the area, please go along and support the band. They would have worked their socks off this week and fully deserve an audience to perform too. I am gutted I am not there to see them, so please send my regards.

    Would like to say the band sounds really good this year,anyone in North Wales should come along and support the band , having played the Bill Connor Concerto before( was written for the 2004 Llandudno music festival), it's another great addition to the repoirtoire , Hearing the playing of Harvey and Helen Davies is another bonus.
    Check the band out 50 of the best young musicians in Wales on Show.

    About 20 of us are going from Northop to the Buckley concert - a lot less further to travel this year than going to Treorchy last year!! Looking forward to it.

    Very good concert at Galeri tonight - band sounded really good - some excellent music too. Must have been a killer of a programme for such a young band - 7.30pm start and they finish the concert off at 9.55pm with Music of the Spheres! Well done all.

    If I wasn't working all day :mad: I'd go to the Buckley concert, sounds great. Good luck to everyone involved. I've got very fond, if increasingly distant, memories of NYBBW concerts and they were never less than memorable!
