Brass Bands England's next fortnightly webinar presentation is to be led by internationally renowned percussionist Simone Rebello.

In her illustrated talk Simone will look at the developing role of percussion in brass bands over its historical span — from beginnings to date, and from a single bass drum to the vast array of exotic equipment used today.

This session is free for BBE members and £5 for non-members.
