New Signings Set Strata Up For Regional Assault
Strata Brass announce several new signings ahead of their appearance in the Yorkshire Championship Area Contest in March.
Kelvin Tsang who is over in the UK to study takes up the Principal Euphonium seat while Joe Bradford takes up the position of Assistant Principal Cornet, having impressed the band over the last few weeks with his Repiano Playing.
David Edwards arrives to fill the vacant Repiano chair and Oliver Bartlett takes up the 2nd trombone position, transferring from the City of Cardiff Mellingriffith Band. The band is happy to see Josh Allen return to the band on Eb Bass following a period away. Josh was part of the winning First Section Regional Yorkshire Championships in 2018.
Band manager, Rob Hardy told A4B: ‘The band are looking forward to challenges of competing in the championship section in Huddersfield and also their first ever appearance in the Spring Festival in May. The band has continued its recent policy under MD Jonathan Bates to encourage young players to meet the challenges ahead and the band is benefitting from their contribution.’
