    As part of the 2014 Black Dyke Brass Arts Festival, held on Sunday 23rd March at Leeds Town Hall, there will be an inaugural 'Tenor Horn Spotlight', organised and led by myself with assistance from Helen Varley and Alison Childs.

    Starting at 10am, delegates will have the chance to meet the Black Dyke horn section, and engage in a number of workshops, focussing on solo, small/large ensemble and section playing.

    The afternoon gala concert is provided by the Black Dyke Band in the stunning main hall and for
    the first time, as part of this event, we can offer delegates a unique opportunity to be able to take part in performing a massed tenor horn feature, joint with the Black Dyke horn section and accompanied by the band with director Nicholas Childs in the main concert.
    (Parts will be available before the day)

    We will be planning the day's activities to cover ALL abilities and ages, with a special parts being written out for the feature piece to accommodate those who would like a less technically demanding part.

    The cost for the day will be £5 and you can register by emailing Please include your name, band, preferred part/standard and email address.

    We hope you can join us for this unique session highlighting the best instrument in the band!

    Just a quick update regarding the day!

    As a massed group/swarm/menagerie of tenor horns, we will be performing Roy Newsome's popular 'Hat Trick', accompanied by Black Dyke Band and Dr Nicholas Childs. If those that have already registered have a set at their own bands, if you can have a look at whichever part you would like. If not, I will shortly have a set, along with two more parts which are slightly less technically demanding, ready to send out to people.
