Tune in to YouTube for youth festival broadcast
The Scottish Virtual Youth Brass Band Festival will be taking place on Sunday (29 November) at 2pm on the SBBA YouTube channel.
Youth brass and percussion groups of any size have been invited to take part in this online event which has been organised in the wake of the postponement of the Scottish Festival of Brass because of the current COVID-19 restrictions on public gatherings.
Eleven ensembles will be taking the virtual stage and Chris Bradley, principal cornet of Whitburn Band and recently appointed Besson artist, has been invited to give feedback on each band’s performance.
There will also be an award for the most entertaining programme and the best performance of a Scottish piece.
Each band will receive a certificate of participation and a £35 voucher to purchase music for their band from Just Music, supported by business owner Nigel Durno, Creative Scotland and SBBA.
