The National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain is set to host a free 'virtual open-day' on Tuesday 6th April.
It has been specially designed to give an unique insight for brass and percussion players between the age of 13 and 18, about the organisation as well as enjoy a fantastic masterclass from one of its leading tutors — Cory Band principal cornet, Tom Hutchinson.
There will also be the opportunity to ask questions of Operations Manager, Richard Milton, and NYBBGB Director of Artistic Planning, Dr Robert Childs, as well as enjoy listening into the sectional rehearsals of the band led by their international team of world class tutors.
The session will be held during the Youth Brass Band's forthcoming Easter Course, which due to the ongoing pandemic, will be a mix of virtual and physical performances and educational opportunities.
Operations Manager, Richard Milton told 4BR: "The Open Day will be a fantastic opportunity for youngsters who want to enjoy the wonderful experience of the band.
Not only will they get to listen to masterclass from Tom Hutchinson, but they'll get to listen in to sectional rehearsals, led by a stellar cast of the best of the best."
