  The free concert will support the National Youth Band's work

The National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain's Alumni Reunion Band is set to return to the concert stage next month as they join Brett Baker's Alumni All Star Sextet for a free event.

The players will come under the baton of Guest Conductor, Captain Sam Hairsine, Director of Music HM Royal Marines at Stockport Citadel on Saturday 8th April (3.30pm-5.30pm).

National Youth Concert

There is also a bonus later in the evening, as you can head into Manchester to enjoy the current stars of the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain in concert at Stoller Hall at 7.00pm.

Supported by Denis Wick Products Ltd, Brett's Alumni Allstar sextet will consist of the Black Dyke trombonist alongside Tom Smith (principal cornet, Brighouse & Rastrick), Keith Britcliffe (cornet, Black Dyke), Emily Evans (solo horn, Flowers), James McLeod (euphonium, Easington Colliery) and Gregor Spence (solo Eb bass, Flowers).

Support

Speaking about the event, Brett told 4BR: "I'm delighted the group is able to support the National Youth Band bursary scheme to support our young players on future courses."

Formed in 2022 for the 70th anniversary of the organisation, the Alumni Reunion Band comprises former players who have enjoyed the benefits of playing with the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain.
