The Firth Park Community Brass Band National Youth Championships!

Published on 25/03/2024

Firth Park Community Brass Band is a newly formed band and consists of budding brass players from Beck Primary School, Firth Park Academy and our Intermediate and Senior Brass groups.

On Saturday the 23rd March the group hopped on a coach and travelled all the way down to Cheltenham to compete in the Brass Bands England National Youth Brass Band Championships. It was a brilliant day of "joyous music making" (as put by parent helper Nick), in which the band put on a wonderful performance and did themselves and Sheffield proud. If you're interested, you'll be able to hear their Sheffield inspired performance setlist during Friday's Spring Showcase concert!

If you are interested in how the group came together, sponsors of the project, Pbone Music, pulled together a wonderful YouTube video which captures the build up to the event and all the excitement surrounding it.
