Delighted

Brass in Concert Chairman, David Bennett said: "We are delighted to be able to announce such an outstanding line-up of leading bands for our return to Sage Gateshead in November.

The five competitors are:

Elland Silver Youth
Enderby Youth
Houghton Area Youth
Lions Youth Brass
Youth Brass 2000

The event will be held at Sage Gateshead in association with Yamaha, Banks Group and World of Brass on Saturday 20th November, with the gala concert being rested from the schedule due to Covid-19 mitigation4BR

Safety

David Bennett concluded: "Having missed out on last year's event, tickets for 2021 are sure to sell quickly, but we are aware that some may be reticent in committing due to possible Covid concerns.

Public safety will obviously be our top priority and we are able to assure our loyal customers that all tickets will be refunded if the event has to be cancelled due to Covid.

However, we are confident that the situation will be resolved and that we can look forward to welcoming everyone back to Gateshead in November for yet another wonderful Brass in Concert event!"
