On Saturday 21st May 2015 the band were involved in a celebration of the music of J.S.Bach with classical music charity Ensemble Cymru. They lent us one of their trumpeters, Gwyn Owen, for the morning and he shared some tips with us before joining us in a performance of Bach’s ‘Air from the Peasant Cantata’. It was a brilliant experience and the band really enjoyed themselves.
