The Scottish Brass Band Association has announced the lucky winner of its Cory Band VIP Concert Package competition.
The world's number 1 ranked band will be playing in concert alongside the National Youth Brass Band of Scotland in a special 60th anniversary event at Perth Concert Hall on Wednesday 4th April (7.30pm), and Karen Muir from Greenock will now be enjoying the experience, which includes meeting MD Philip Harper and star players backstage as well as getting a signed Cory CD.
She told 4BR: "As somebody who never usually wins anything, you can imagine my delight on hearing this news. I'm thrilled, especially as it comes with the opportunity to meet the band.
I'm really looking forward to the concert as my son is also playing for the first time with the National Youth Band of Scotland, so it's going to be a memorable night for all the family."
