Besson has welcomed the addition of Tredegar Band's solo euphonium player Yu-Han Yang as their latest addition to their stable of International Performance Artists.
It marks the latest high profile recognition for the Taiwanese performer who is also a Young Artist of the Musician's Company and is undertaking Advanced Performance studies at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire (RBC).
In 2019, Yu-Han claimed first prize at the prestigious Charlton House Lyrical Brass Competition in London as well as securing first place at RBC's Brass Prize competition and graduating with a Masters Degree with Distinction.
In 2020, he joined the Welsh champion, playing an integral part in the successful defence of their title. His latest success was in reaching the final of the high profile Jeju International Brass Competition Euphonium Division.
The final will be held in November where the three finalist will perform Philip Wilby's 'Euphonium Concerto' with the Jeju Symphony Orchestra.
The future is also very exciting with a number of opportunities that will hopefully take place. Being recognised by Besson in this way certainly adds to thatYu-Han Yang
