On Sunday 30th October 2016, the City of Cambridge Bras Band launched its Youth Academy, aimed at developing young brass talent in the Cambridgeshire area. Nineteen young brass players from around Cambridgeshire came together for an intensive day of rehearsals, masterclasses and performance. The day was led by guest conductor Dean Wright, Principal Trumpet for the Orchestra of the Welsh National Opera. It was a highly successful day, supported by sectional coaches from the City of Cambridge Brass Band, culminating in an inaugural concert alongside the 'senior' band to a packed hall at Impington Village College. Check out some photos and video/audio from the day below.
