    Whitburn Band to ‘Open’ up!

    Ahead of its assault on the British Open Championship, the current Scottish and Scottish Open Champion, Whitburn Band, is to hold an open rehearsal on Thursday 11 September. Recent victories at the Land O’ Burns and Brass in the Park contests have seen the band emerge from the summer break full of confidence, with Musical Director, Steven Mead, eagerly anticipating his conducting debut at the most prestigious contest in the brass band calendar.

    Steven Mead commented: “The band has been working very hard for these championships and is looking forward to performing Edward Gregson’s thrilling new work. The fine run that Whitburn has experienced recently has put us in great shape for a serious challenge, and I would like to open the doors for our last rehearsal in Scotland before travelling south.”

    Whitburn Band will rehearse from 7.30pm at the Regal Theatre in Bathgate, West Lothian, and welcomes all members of the Scottish brass band community to come along and sample Rococo Variations ahead of the piece’s world premiere on Saturday in Symphony Hall, Birmingham.
