Strata Brass has announce several new signings ahead of their Championship Section appearance at the forthcoming Yorkshire Area contest in Huddersfield.
Following their podium finish at the recent Brass at the Guild contest, student Kelvin Tsang takes up the solo euphonium role, whilst Joe Bradford moves up to assistant principal cornet having impressed everyone with his playing on the repiano cornet seat over the last few weeks.
David Edwards comes in to take on that role, with Oliver Bartlett moving up from Wales from City of Cardiff Mellingriffith Band to fill the second trombone position. Finally, Josh Allen makes a welcome return on EEb tuba.
