Brass Bands England (BBE) will host its next Artistic Development workshop with Philip Harper, Musical Director Cory Band in Yorkshire later this month.

The nationwide initiative has already been a great success throughout England, with the latest day taking place at The Civic Barnsley (S70 2HZ) on Sunday 29th June (10.00am — 4.00pm).

Popular appeal

The workshop is designed to appeal to anyone interested in taking their banding forward more creatively, particularly those who have interest in artistic direction, conducting, or undertaking new collaborative ventures.

Delegates will explore how to enhance their audience experience and advance their band through the wider context of art.

After lunch (provided in the cost) Philip will look at how to maximise the benefit of rehearsals, with the help of Rockingham Band in attendance, along with the practicalities of maximising profile by use of social media and marketing.

Inspiring day

BBE Chair Mike Kilroy commented: "This is sure to be an inspiring day that will get your imaginative juices flowing, and with tickets for the event available for as little as £5 thanks to the support of Arts Council England, it is clearly an opportunity not to be missed!"

The event will take place in the excellent facilities of The Civic, Barnsley, starting at 10.00am and running until 4.00pm approxBBE
