God Bless the NHS!

Tredegar Band continues to help celebrate the 70th anniversary of the NHS with a special concert in Pontypridd on the weekend hosted by broadcaster Beverley Humphreys.

  The God Bless the NHS concert will feature the special commission 'Legacy'


It's been a busy schedule of late for Tredegar Band as they have played a central part in the 70th anniversary celebrations of the founding of the National Health Service.

Following their recent performances as part of the Aneurin Bevan Day in their home town and at the Houses of Parliament, they round things off with a special 'God Bless the NHS' concert in Pontypridd on Saturday (14th July at 7.00pm) hosted by the well known opera singer and BBC broadcaster Beverley Humphreys.

Arrive in time

"It's another high profile event — and one we are delighted to be part of," MD Ian Porthouse told 4BR. "Beverley is a great supporter of brass bands and regularly features music on her popular radio programme.

She is also an indefatigable supporter of wonderful causes and has led the 'God Bless the NHS' initiative that has seen walkers trek down the length of Wales — hopefully to arrive just in time to out their feet up and enjoy a concert that will of course feature Tom Davoren's new soprano cornet commission 'Legacy'."

Innsbruck, Devon and Cardiff

Following the event, Tredegar will prepare to travel to Austria for an appearance at the famous Innsbruck Promenade Concerts alongside trombone soloist Lito Fontana, followed by concert performances at the Camp Bestival Festival in Dorset and at the Welsh National Eisteddfod in Cardiff.

Support us for less than a cup of coffee...

4BR wants to ensure that the brass band movement remains vibrant and relevant. We also want to be able to question, challenge and critically examine those who run and play in it, producing high quality journalism that informs as well as entertains our readers.

So if like us you value a strong, independent perspective on the brass band world - then why not consider becoming a supporter and help make our future and that of a burgeoning brass band movement more secure.

So one less cappuccino then?
