Young Lancashire Brass is the Lancashire County Youth Brass Band. There is also a Training Brass Band, as well as the usual Jazz, Concert Bands and Orchestras. We are short of players in certain sections generally, as well as for a summer tour. We are DESPERATE for bass players at the mo, and can offer the loan of brand new instruments for applicants (Sovereigns for BBb and Maestros for EEb). I'm the bass / euph tutor (unlucky, there are some drawbacks!) and the conductor is Peter Read (ex principal cornet Brighouse, Wingates, Kings of Brass etc.). Other tutors are:Cornet, John Doyle (Dyke), Horns, Frank Moon (Ex CWS Manchester), Troms, John Stevens (Fodens),percussion, Sarah Lord (Halle etc, ex Leyland). To join you have to be a resident in Lancashire County Council territory, ie. not Blackburn with Darwen, Blackpool, Wigan etc etc Unitary Authority. Rehearsals are every couple of weeks in Chorley on Saturdays, we don't contest (so no clashes with other bands) and travel expenses are available. It's a great SOCIAL band, as well as a good standard. If you're interested, or know anyone who maybe, please mail me!
