    Elland Silver Youth Band are one of the UK’s finest established Youth Brass Bands.

    They have a membership of over 35 players aged from 10 – 18 years and are renound for their innovative and entertaining performances at venues across the country. The band is in demand locally to perform at workshops and concerts. They have performed at many of the UKs finest concert halls and later this year will be performing at the BBC Children in Need Concert in Huddersfield Town Hall.

    On Saturday 18th May the band are hosting an Open Rehearsal from 10-12pm at their bandroom in Dewsbury Road, Elland. The Open Day is for young brass and percussion players in the area who would like a chance to play challenging and enjoyable music with other players of their own age group.

    Young players from the organisations training band have been invited to help motivate and inspire them to achieve the standard required by the youth band.

    “Here at Elland we have an interest in developing our young players from beginners to advanced level musicians. We don’t audition our players, instead we listen, coach and encourage them to achieve the high standards set by the band and their Musical Director, Samantha Harrison” explained secretary, Kathleen Harrison.

    We can also loan good quality instruments to players, for example trumpet players are welcome to come along and borrow a Bb cornet.

    Any young players who might be interested in coming along should contact the bands Musical Director, Samantha Harrison on 07940 525837 or email ellandband@hotmail.co.uk
