The brass band is the most active ensemble in the Conservatoire.

In addition to termly concerts of varied and challenging repertoire, the band accompanies student soloists in concerto performances (as a part of their Final Projects). Most years we also travel to the Whit Friday Marches, where we have achieved some excellent results!

Tredegar Town Band

The Conservatoire enjoys a flourishing partnership with Tredegar Town Band (TTB), with whom we have given a number of joint concerts. The most recent was a performance of Howard Snell's arrangement of Gustav Holst's suite The Planets.

A number of Conservatoire students are regular members of TTB, while others appear on an occasional basis.

In an exciting new initiative, a partnership between the Conservatoire and TTB will deliver an innovative youth mentoring and development scheme in South Wales.
