Ahead of the forthcoming area contest in Swansea, Tongwynlais are pleased to announce some new signings to bolster the ranks. Taking over the Principal Trombone seat, Jo Hirst joins from a recent stint at Treherbert but has also held seats with BTM, Burry Port and Cory. “Having someone of Jo’s calibre to lead the trombone section is a great coup for the band” says Jason Bevan (Chairman). Joining the solo cornet bench is Iestyn Davies who makes the move from Llwydcoed. Ben Teague is welcomed on Bb bass to bring the bottom end back to a full compliment and finally, Peter McDonough comes in on euphonium for the Area contest. “These new signings ahead of the area further strengthen the band and we’re pleased to have them all on board.” (Jason Bevan, Chairman).
