We’re going on tour to Wales on 13-14 October

We’re very excited to be going on tour to Wales. We’ll be playing a joint concert with the Aber Valley Male Voice Choir who came to Bournemouth to sing with us last year. Our clarinet player and deputy conductor Emma’s uncle is in the choir and it’s now our turn to visit them in beautiful Wales.

We’re playing two concerts:

  • On Saturday 13 October we’ll be playing at the Bedwas Workmen’s Hall in Caerphilly from 7pm.
  • On Sunday 14 October we’ll be playing a lunch time concert at Caerphilly Castle from 12pm.
