YBS to help Youth Champions

European Champions set to give a helping hand to Rochdale Youth Bands.


On Sat 31st Jan YBS are performing a concert in Rochdale at the Gracie Fields Theatre 7.30pm start. This is a joint concert with Rochdale Youth Band and Rochdale Junior Brass Band, both who have been very successful this past year. (Rochdale Youth are the current youth entertainment champs and Rochdale juniors are music for youth junior champs).

The concert is a fund raiser for the youth bands and all proceeds are being forwarded to the Rochdale bands. Just out of interest Stuart Lingard, Dave Clegg(Eb bass) and Hayley Moore (the current MD) were all members of the Rochdale Youth band and received their tuition through Rochdale Music service.
