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.

New players are always very welcome. We include brass players, woodwind players and percussionists, and recommend grade 3 standard or above.

Watch us perform “The Circle of Life” from Disney’s The Lion King:

And check out our Pirates of the Caribbean:
