Info

The City of Cambridge Brass Band (CoCBB) was formed around 1900 and has a rich heritage of high quality brass music. We have realised that there is a need for a youth band to enthuse and train young brass players from Cambridge and the surrounding areas. CoCBB’s constitution aims “to advance the education of the general public in the art and science of British Brass Band music through the provision of public band concerts and recitals and training in brass music skills.” We feel that starting a youth band will help us deliver this vision and give the youngsters involved high-quality training not on offer anywhere else locally within the remit of CoCBB.
The City of Cambridge Youth Brass Band with tutor young brass players (up to 18 years old) of grade 5+ in the art and science of British Brass Band music. This will not be a 'community' band where beginners sit and play next to older members of the group and learn through the process of osmosis, but a group dedicated to further developing the pre-existing skills of more advanced players. Although Cambridge can boast 'Junior Prime Brass' and other ad hoc brass groups, the City of Cambridge Youth Brass Band will rehearse weekly with various engagements (both self promotion and community events) planned on a regular basis.
The youth band will benefit from regular sectional coaching sessions from members of the 'senior' band which includes several professional players and distinguished instrumental and classroom teachers which is unrivaled anywhere else in Cambridgeshire.
