Joining them is Gaz Rose, who has been associated with Geneva Group for a number of years and is highly respected as a euphonium performer in the Salvation Army movement. He becomes an ambassador for the Glenn Van Looy 'Cardinal' euphonium, having produced a number of videos on the different qualities of the euphonium range.
