THREE former music students at Huddersfield University returned there this week as part of the Regimental Band of the Coldstream Guards.
The Guards gave their first joint concert with the university at St Paul's Hall in Huddersfield, sharing the stage with the University of Huddersfield Symphonic Wind Orchestra.
Earlier in the day, musicians from the Coldstream Guards rehearsed with the Wind Orchestra and ran a series of workshops with the university's music students.
The contingent from the Coldstreams included former Huddersfield university students, Matthew Broadbent, Gavin Hall and John Storey.
For John the visit had particularly strong connections. His sister Jessica is currently studying music at the university - as did his other sister, Kate.
All three are brass players and the family is from Hebden Bridge.
The visit went so well that the Coldstreams have invited students to make a return trip to the regiment at its base at Wellington Barracks.
