Lancashire Youth Brass Band

Our brass band (LYBB) is one of Lancashire Music Service’s county ensembles, providing inspiring opportunities for young musicians across the county.

 

 

New players very welcome (grade 3 standard and above).

We welcome new players of all instruments, from about Grade 3 standard upwards, but we specifically have vacancies at the moment for two front row and two back row cornet players, and two Bb bass players.

Rehearsals are at St Michael’s High School in Chorley and we have an exciting programme of forthcoming events and concerts including National Youth Brass Band Championships, a residential course and a summer tour.
