Brass bands’ mu­si­cal union

North Wales Weekly News - - NEWS -

YOUNG peo­ple and adult learn­ers of three North Wales brass bands, Llan­dudno Town Train­ing Band, Me­nai Bridge Be­gin­ner and In­ter­me­di­ate Bands and Dyf­fryn Nantlle Ju­nior Band, had a fan­tas­tic day re­cently with re­hearsals taken by mem­bers of the world fa­mous Black Dyke Band and a con­cert on the Llan­dudno Prom­e­nade fea­tur­ing a massed band per­for­mance with all 80 play­ers from the three bands.

Sue Hughes, con­duc­tor of the Llan­dudno Town Train­ing Band, ex­plained: “The idea of the day was to bring our bands to­gether so they could meet other brass play­ers, and also to in­vite the Black Dyke Band mem­bers along to show how good the top play­ers are and hope­fully in­spire our mem­bers for the fu­ture.’

In the evening the bands went down to the Llan­dudno bandstand on the prom­e­nade to fin­ish the day with a massed band per­for­mance.

The Llan­dudno Town se­nior band opened the con­cert which fea­tured in­di­vid­ual items from each band and closed with the massed band play­ing ‘Calon Lan’ and ‘It’s a long way to Tip­per­ary’ both ar­ranged by the Me­nai Bridge Be­gin­ner and In­ter­me­di­ate Band’s con­duc­tor Han­nah Re­tal­lick.
