THEY are a dedicated bunch of young brass musicians who can play in just about any style you like.
Brass classics, modern pieces and big film tunes could well feature in a summer concert by Scissett Youth Band in Huddersfield tomorrow night (July 9).
This is your chance to hear some of our brightest young talents playing a concert they all look forward to. It’s showtime and it’s summer.
The concert is at 7pm in St Paul's Hall on the University of Huddersfield Campus.
The band will play a range of brass band music for all ages, classic and modern, along with some arrangements of film music.
Band chairmanMike Brown said: “We are proud of the young players, who have a high level of musicianship and dedication for their age.”
There are about 30 of those young musicians aged between 13 and 18.
The band, which is self-financing, is always on the lookout for new players.
If you are a teenager who plays brass or percussion to Grade 2 standards and fancy joining a band, Scissett could be for you.
There’s a warm welcome for anyone interested in joining the band which rehearses at Shelley Methodist Hall, Far Bank, Shelley every Thursday from 7.15 to 9.30pm.
This weekend’s summer concert will be attended by Kirklees Deputy Mayor Councillor Christine Iredale and other guests.
Doors open at 6.30pm, the concert starts at 7pm and tickets are available on the door at £5 and £3.50 concessions
The band will be conducted by its musical director, Simon Mansfield.
