Written By: David Read Comments: 0

Christian Jones will be performing the première of a new bass trombone concerto by Gareth Wood next weekend. The Philharmonia Orchestra's bass trombonist will be accompanied by the National Youth Brass Band of Wales in concerts in Fishguard and Cardiff.

Christian is really looking forward to going down to coach sectionals with the youth band on Thursday before rehearsing the piece, recording it and then giving the two performances:

It is going to be a packed week, but its really nice to take the opportunity to do something different. The piece is great - pretty tuneful, although at 13 minutes it is quite a work out!

Friday 25 July – 7.30pm, Ysgol Bro Gwaun, Fishguard
Saturday 26 July - 7.00pm, University of Cardiff Concert Hall, Cardiff

National Youth Brass Band of Wales
Supported by The Rotary Club of Fishguard & Goodwick
