WBBA launch the Wessex Youth Band

(April 14, 2013)

On the 14th April 2013 the WBBA met in an initial meeting with interested parties to kick start the formation of a Wessex Youth Band. Steve Chislett, Chairman, explained that other Associations like Cornwall and Gloucester run very successful Youth Bands and he hoped that The Wessex would do the same.  Having a Youth Band means our younger members have somewhere they can meet and make new friends and play in a Band of similar aged people. Perhaps in the future being able to run a Summer or Easter course and invite a Professional Conductor to take the Band and also to encourage and train young people to play musical instruments.

The initial get together of the Wessex Youth Band will be held on Sunday 14th July 2013 at Burgate School, Salisbury Road, Fordingbridge, Hamps. SP6 1EZ from 10.00 to 16.00

(the last hour being when parents can come in to hear the band perform).
