The Staffordshire Band has announced a substantial number of new signings ahead of the appearance at the Midlands Regional Championships.
The 2018 First Section National Championship runner-up has been reinvigorated by the arrival of Craig Williams as Musical Director.
It has also signalled the return of tuba players Kris Davies and Lawrence Ecclestone, whilst the trombone section welcomes Helen White and Karina Fodden.
The award winning Yu-Han Yang of the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire comes in on solo euphonium, with the horn section boosted by Dale Hopkins, joining Lauren Gifford and Julie Dale, with Laura Jeffs on flugel horn.
The cornet section sees the arrival of Gemma Leigh Price, Rachael Dickens, Chris Wood and Stephen Ward, whilst stalwart Chairman, Shaun Elliott, moves from solo cornet.
He told 4BR: "It's a very exciting time for Staffs, seeing this mix of experienced players join forces with other younger ones to make music under Craig Williams."
