The Rogerstone Community Band has announced the appointment of Robert Burnett as their new Musical Director.

Regarded as one of the finest Welsh euphonium players of his generation he has played for the likes of Cory, Tredegar, Parc & Dare and latterly Mid Rhondda. He has also gained a wide-ranging respect for his teaching and conducting — including a highly enjoyable spell in France.

Exciting time

Band spokesperson, Steve Haycox told 4BR: "This is a very exciting time for us and we are looking forward to working with such an inspirational and talented musician."

Andy has decided to focus his time and effort on his studies and busy schedule at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and the City of Cardiff M2 Band.
