    Brighouse and Rastrick Principals Michael Howley (Euphonium) and Stephen Wilkinson (Cornet) are jetting off to Copenhagen this week to work with two bands ahead of the forthcoming Danish National Championships.
    Michael and Stephen will deliver Masterclasses and lead rehearsals with Brass Band Concord and Brass Band Lyngby-Taarbæk.
    Michael will also be running a Masterclass for the Brass Section of the Royal Guards Band of Denmark. On Saturday 15th August, the pair will be adjudicating a National Quintet Competition and performing at the Gala Concert.
    Sadly for Brighouse, Michael will not be appearing with the band at the British Open contest this September due to work commitments. The band are extremely grateful to Steve Walsh, formerly of the YBS band who will deputise for Michael on Saturday 12th September. The 'Open will be the eagerly awaited contest debut with the band for professional musical director Professor David King.
