100 young Brass and Percussionists attend Grimethorpe Youth Band Day!
Last Saturday saw a record breaking 100 budding musicians attend the second Grimethorpe Besson Youth Band Day.
The children, who travel from as far away as Devon, were coached by tutors Jamie Cooper, Dan Robson, Stan Lippeatt, Andy Holmes, Gaz Beckwith, Shaun Crowther, Michael Dodd and Andy Lockett in sectionals and in full band situations. The day finished with a joint concert involving the Youth and Senior band infront of a packed hall at the Shafton ALC School.
Grimethorpe would like to thank Stan Lippeatt for conducting the event, Nigel Dixon and Gaz Beckwith for organising the day and to Gavin Somerset of Pennine Music Publishing for providing us with music for the Youth Band - http://www.penninemusic.com/index.php
The next Youth Band day is set for March 9th 2013 - we look forward to seeing all of our talented youngsters in the new year!
