Woodwind, Brass and Percussion players at Grade 3 + Standard – SYCB


Woodwind, Brass and Percussion players at Grade 3 + Standard – SYCB

We would like to invite woodwind, brass or percussion (either kit or orchestral) players at Grade 3 + standard to this year’s Easter Wind Band Course.

You will need to apply early, because there are a limited number of places, which will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

The purpose of this course is to give you the opportunity to play alongside the Somerset Youth Concert Band which you can join as a member when you are Grade 5 standard.  The SYCB has about 50 members so it is a fantastic opportunity to play in a large ensemble.

Rehearsal Sunday 14th April 2024: 3.00pm – 5.00pm – Cedars Hall, The Liberty, Wells BA5 2ST

Concert Sunday 14th April 2024: 7.00pm – 9.00pm – Cedars Hall, The Liberty, Wells BA5 2ST

If you would like to come along please complete the application form by Monday 25th March. The cost of the course is £30.00
