Events / Activities
The following events are scheduled for the Cluster Brass Band (check the calendar for this year’s dates):
Cluster Band Rehearsals at Music Camp
Annually in October
The JYHS Music Camp takes place at the Broomlee Centre in West Linton. Cluster Brass Band members from primary schools are invited to join secondary school pupils at the JYHS Music Camp on Saturday for rehearsals and outdoor activities.
JYHS Christmas Concert – Matinee Performance
Annually in December
The JYHS Cluster Brass Band usually take part in the matinee performance of the JYHS Christmas Concert. This is an excellent opportunity for parents and family to watch the band play in a relaxed and festive concert, and see the fantastic progress made by the band since the start of the school year. Tickets can be purchased in advance from the JYHS school office.
From time to time the Cluster Brass Band is also involved in other events. For example in November 2014, the Cluster Brass Band performed at a special charity concert in conjunction with Total Brass (an award-winning brass quintet) and also took part in the Scottish Youth Brass Band Festival in Perth.
