The YBS Band has revealed on their website that their new principal euphonium player is the world renowned Morgan Griffiths.

Griffiths has a long standing connection with YBS over many years and was an integral part of the original YBS line up when David King first took over the band in 1994.

He became a cornerstone of the bands subsequent success, before moving from the band to latterly play with Fairey's.

Returning home

I am delighted to be returning home to YBS, re-joining my dad who is librarian having been associated with the band throughout most of my playing careerMorgan Griffiths

Morgan told the YBS website: "I am delighted to be returning home to YBS, re-joining my dad who is librarian having been associated with the band throughout most of my playing career. I am excited to look to the future building on the band’s incredible successes."

Morgan’s first appearance with the band will be at Scarborough later this month.
