Youth Academy Launch Day
What an amazing day! On Sunday 30th October, 19 talented young brass players from around the Cambridgeshire area came together for an intensive day of rehearsals, masterclasses and an inaugural concert. All under the guest leadership of Dean Wright, principal trumpet for the Orchestra of Welsh National Opera. See the Academy's first performance together above. And find out more about the Youth Academy here.
