  The successful partnership between Andy Wareham and the M2 Band has come to an end.

The musical partnership between conductor Andy Wareham and City of Cardiff (Melingriffith) M2 Band has come to an end.

Andy's increasing study work load at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama in Cardiff means that he is unable to focus his attention on a band that continues to make significant contesting progress.

I'd like to thank each member of M2 for all of their hard work over the past 10 months and for some fantastic performances, including a podium finish at the 2017 Welsh Area ChampionshipAndy Wareham

Thanks

He told 4BR: "I'd like to thank each member of M2 for all of their hard work over the past 10 months and for some fantastic performances, including a podium finish at the 2017 Welsh Area Championship.

I would also like to thank the Melingriffith committee for all of their support during my tenure and I wish the band, the committee and the organisation as a whole all the very best for the future."
