Speaking about the concert, SBBA President Carrie Boax told 4BR: "Scottish banding has always looked to inspire its young players by linking with the very best performers and musicians in the world, and we are delighted to do that once more by offering a warm welcome to Cory and Philip Harper.
The trip will include a number of different links with the band and the young players, as well as the fantastic concert in Perth, so keep an eye out for further news. This is going to be an event not to miss."
Hopefully Cory can similarly inspire some of the next generation of brass musicians north of the border, and provide a memorable night also for all in attendanceCory MD, Philip Harper
In response Philip Harper added: "We're really looking forward to working with the talented young people of the National Youth Brass Band of Scotland in April, and sharing the stage with them in Perth.
I fondly remember my days with the National Youth Band of Great Britain and the importance to my musical education and experience of working and playing with many inspirational musicians who were at that time at the forefront of the brass band world.
Hopefully Cory can similarly inspire some of the next generation of brass musicians north of the border, and provide a memorable night also for all in attendance."
