Elland Silver Band will be hosting a Yorkshire Area preview this weekend.
The event at Brooksbank School, Victoria Road, Elland will take place on Saturday 23rd February (6.30pm), and will feature the Friendly Band (Fourth Section), Lofthouse 2000 (Third Section), Meltham & Meltham Mills (Second Section), Wakefield Metropolitan (First Section) and Elland Silver (Championship Section) — all previewing their test-piece challenges.
Each band will also perform a hymn tune and a concert piece, after which the experienced Mike Kilroy will provide some helpful advice to help the bands in their final week of preparation for Huddersfield.
Elland Silver Band Secretary, Kathleen Harrison told 4BR: "We are looking forward to welcoming our banding friends and to hear their performances on the test-pieces.
We hope everyone will enjoy the evening and that the bands will go on and be successful at the Area contest.
