Two young members of Llangollen Silver Band have scooped first prize in a prestigious brass contest.
At the North Wales Brass Band Association's contest held at the Galeri in Caernarfon, Taya Castley and Elizabeth Mwale, both aged 13, won first prize in the under 14's section of the J.B. Williams Challenge Shield for Duets.
Taya (on cornet) and Elizabeth (baritone), put in a highly polished performance of Pleasant Moments by Geo Hawkins and beat off strong competition to claim first place.
Band spokesman, Robert Stock, said: "The band are extremely proud of the girls' achievement and it's great to see the talents of our young players being recognised on a national level."
