    Huge congratulations to Poppy Garlick, overall winner of the training band section of our Easter solo competition. It's been really wonderful to see how our young players have kept at their practice throughout the months we haven't been able to get together in person and everyone has been so impressed at their dedication and continued progress. Many thanks to all the players and their families for their hard work and support. Can't wait to get back together and enjoy music as an ensemble! ... See MoreSee Less

    Our Easter treat for you - an absolutely beautiful solo from the overall winner of the Youth Band's solo competition, Scarlet Brooke. It was brilliant to hear more than 50 of our talented young players in the online concert on Good Friday, everyone had worked really hard. Special thanks to our musical director Seth Livingstone for all his enthusiasm and work to put the concert together and to adjudicator Adam Bokaris (Solo Euphonium Grimethorpe Colliery Band) who gave each player really useful individual feedback as well as good practice advice for the whole band! ...

The players asked that the money be given to When You Wish Upon a Star and Oldham Foodbank . Thank you everyone and fingers crossed we will be out and about again soon. ... See MoreSee Less
