  The course will be led by Ian Porthouse

The National Youth Brass Band of Scotland is making a final call to young players interested in joining the band for its exciting Easter Course.

It will be held at Strathallan School in Perthshire under new Musical Director Ian Porthouse. He will be joined by conductors John Boax, Alan Fernie and Musical Director Emeritus Richard Evans from 11th to 14th April on a course that will see them working with the joint senior and reserve bands.

World premiere

With invaluable funding from Creative Scotland's Youth Music Initiative (YMI), the combined band will also premiere a commissioned work by Tom Davoren featuring former NYBBS and current Fairey Band solo horn, Rachel Neil.
