The Geneva Group has announced a number of new musical ambassadors as the company continue to make a mark on the brass band market place.

Development

Paul Archibald, the renowned teacher, conductor, trumpet player and Chairman of the London Mozart Players and founder member of the English Brass Academy has become a Development Ambassador advising on the Geneva C Trumpet range as well as a range of new mouthpieces.

Meanwhile, one of the UK's rising brass band stars, Adam Neild, who plays repiano with Black Dyke, and is a second-year trumpet student at the Royal Northern College Music, becomes an ambassador for the Geneva Bb trumpet range.

Joining them is Gaz Rose, who has been associated with Geneva Group for a number of years and is highly respected as a euphonium performer in the Salvation Army movement. He becomes an ambassador for the Glenn Van Looy 'Cardinal' euphonium, having produced a number of videos on the different qualities of the euphonium range.

Army link

Geneva also welcomes one of the leading British Army euphonium players in Gareth Trott.

He performs with the Band of the Irish Guards in London on an Oldroyd 'Cardinal' euphonium, and is a past graduate at the RWCMD in Cardiff and has just been appointed a tutor at the London College of Music (University of London).

The final member of the new team is Andrew Hedley, the solo euphonium with Reg Vardy Band, one of Geneva's partner bands. He also plays with the International Staff Band of the Salvation Army. He becomes a 'Cardinal' euphonium ambassador.
