Yes! We perform public concerts as well as fetes, garden parties and other private functions. We would be delighted to hear from you and arrange a concert for you.

Who is in Youth Brass 2000?

We are a band of brass players under the age of 19. There is no lower age limit, and we have had members who are 8 years' old previously. Our alumni have highly varied careers...
