The members of the Gloucestershire Youth Brass Band will enjoy a musical experience of a lifetime later this year when they take to the stage to perform alongside the incredible American trumpet player Wynton Marsalis.
They will also be joined by members of the Gloucestershire Youth Jazz Combo and advanced brass and percussion players to combine for what is promised to be a truly fabulous evening of music making at Cheltenham Town Hall on Saturday 13th July.
Steven Legge, the Extended Learning & Provisions Manager or Gloucestershire Music told 4BR: "We are both honoured and delighted to be given this opportunity to perform alongside ten 'Brass for Africa' musicians and the incredible Wynton Marsalis this July.
Our thanks go to Artistic Director Alison Balsom and the Cheltenham Music Festival for this awesome opportunity."
