Lancashire Youth Concert Band

Formed in 1976, the Lancashire Youth Concert Band (LYCB) is one of Lancashire’s County Ensembles.

The concert band offers you the opportunity to work with inspiring leaders and professional musicians,
alongside like-minded young people from across the Lancashire area.

Entry to the band is by audition and students should have reached at least grade 5 on their principal instrument.

Rehearsals take place at Lostock Hall Academy and there is an exciting programme of forthcoming events including concerts, courses, workshops and a summer tour.
