Barnet Youth Brass Band
Barnet Youth Brass Band is made up of talented young brass players and percussionists. Under the baton of conductor Peter Yarde Martin, the band plays a mixture of original brass band repertoire and classical, popular and jazz music to a high standard. The band is open to students up to the age of 21 who have reached a level of Grade 4 or above.
The band play 3 – 4 concerts a year at a variety of venues; recent performances include a Cornwall mini-tour, spots at local jam and jazz nights, the Olympic torch relay, as well as regular joint performances with the Choir of St. John the Baptist’s Church, Chipping Barnet, and other ensembles. As one of the three BEAT Flagship groups, the band appeared onstage at the Royal Albert Hall in BEAT’s Play On 2015.
While the main emphasis of the band is on developing playing and musicianship, and working hard to achieve a high standard of performance, this is done without detracting from the most important aim of music-making: having fun!
Barnet Youth Brass Band takes place on Thursday evenings from 5 – 7pm at Finchley Music Centre, Moss Hall Junior School, Nether Street, West Finchley N3 1NR.
