Old Hall Brass have started a new Youth Band for the new year. Sarah Baxendale, the band's solo horn player, will be the MD, with guidance from John North. Rehearsals will take place on Thursday evenings from 7.15PM - 8.15PM at our Band Room, and is open to all players (old or young!), either currently playing or wishing to learn. Please contact the band for further details. Come on kids, we'd love to see you! Speaking of the new venture - the Band's Chairman, John Sudworth, said "The band is pleased at the opportunity to promote and support a youth band, although older learners are welcome, as this hopefully will protect the long term future of both Old Hall Brass and the movement in general. A lot of younger players have moved through the ranks in the recent past and we would like this to continue to happen so that the band continues to progress and strengthen." About her exciting appointment, the Junior Band's MD, Sarah Baxendale commented " I am very excited by this opportunity. I have lots of ideas and can not wait to get stuck in! The Senior Band's MD, John North agreed "This is a fantastic project, under the watchful eyes of many experienced players from the senior band - we now have an opportunity to tutor and guide youngsters, not only into fine musicians - but also we will teach them about other important values in banding like camaraderie, team-work and loyalty. I'm sure this will be a great success"
