Cwmaman Institute Silver Band would like to welcome three new players to the ranks. Matt Smith joins us on assistant principle cornet, while his sister Tara takes the 1st horn seat. Both played with us at the Grand Shield in May. We would also like to welcome Glyn Davies to the band on solo trombone. Glyn fills the seat vacated be Steven Howell who has left the band due to family commitments. Finally, the band would like to thank a number of players who have helped the band out over the last few months, both at the Grand Shield and the Radio Wales contest, those being Brain Connolly of 1st Old Boys Band, Richard Davies of BAYV, Robert Nesbitt & Andrew Johnson of Newbridge and Nick Jones of BTM.
