Youngsters are a hit in Disneyland
MIDDLETON Youth band have just returned from their third tour to Disneyland Paris.
The trip was made possible after two years of fundraising and saw the band perform at the popular holiday spot in its Videopolis theatre.
Youth band manager and musical director Louise Crane said “It has been so exciting to tour to Europe to play a concert in front of an international audience and especially magical to be playing at Disneyland Paris!
“We are so proud of our young musicians, not only were they excellent ambassadors for our town and country, they were an absolute credit to the band, their parents and themselves for the whole weekend.”
The youth band’s next adventure begins with the launch of an all new training band for beginner brass players.
The launch begins with an open day on Saturday, September 9, between 11am and 12pm in the band room at St Stephen’s Church Hall in Middleton.
Prospective new members can come along to meet the team, try out some of our instruments, play with or listen to our established youth band and register for our new training band.
The first rehearsal for the new training band will be on Monday, September 11, from 6.30pm to 7.30pm.
New members will benefit from our free instrument loan scheme and free tuition from qualified tutors in a fun and safe environment.
Funding for the project has come from Tesco bags of Help, Middleton Round Table and other sources.
Young people over the age of seven who have recently started brass lessons in school or privately or who wish to begin to learn a brass instrument are all welcome to register for the new training band by emailing the youth band manager Louise on email@example.com or by coming to the open day.
The band also have vacancies for any established young brass player in the youth band.
Vacancies would suit players of approximately grade one/two standard or above with opportunities for more advanced players to progress into the senior band.
This service is also free of charge to young brass players. There are no fees or subs.
