Bare Necessities in place for Brass in Concert

A great education outreach scheme will be on show at Sage Gateshead on Friday — highlighting the championships commitment to the next generation of performers.

Bare necessities
  The project has taken place in a number of local schools

The Brass in Concert Championships commitment continues this year with its 'Bare Necessities of Brass' programme — a series of workshops which have been run around the north of England at the beginning of November.

Local schools

It was delivered in partnership with Brass Bands England (BBE) and six northern music education hubs, working with young people in disadvantaged areas. Students from Thornhill Primary, St. Mary's Catholic Primary, West Walker Primary, Ellington Primary, Linton Primary and Oakfield Infant School were supported by BBE's Youth Brass Development Specialist, Helen Minshall, and local brass specialists from the music hubs.

Performance at Sage

The project will culminate in a performance and concert experience at Sage Gateshead on Friday 18th November — the day before the Brass in Concert Championships. 250 youngster will have the opportunity to take part.

A spokesperson told 4BR: "Intermediate level players who have previously taken part in the programme have been providing additional peer support to elementary players, preparing them for the concert day, as well as principal players from the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain (NYBBGB) who will also act as tutors on the day.

By using experienced youth leaders and educators, Brass in Concert ensures that their working partnerships are made up of experts in their field."

This will ensure a high-quality learning and performance opportunity at which all are welcome at the free final concert at 4.30pm on Friday 18th November at Sage GatesheadBrass in Concert

All welcome

They added: "This will ensure a high-quality learning and performance opportunity at which all are welcome at the free final concert at 4.30pm on Friday 18th November at Sage Gateshead.

Please come along to give your support and encouragement to our next generation of brass players as they learn the Bare Necessities of Brass!"
