Pupil Plays with Swiss National Youth Brass Band

Y12 pupil Harry Beach has just returned from Switzerland where he was invited to join the prestigious Swiss National Youth Brass Band.

It does not happen very often for another young brass player to join the Swiss National Youth Brass Band. But on this occasion, Harry was invited by the visiting British Conductor Professor Nicholas Childs from the Royal Northern College of Music based in Manchester.

Harry said: " I am so very grateful to have been offered this wonderful opportunity to travel to Switzerland and join as a guest performer this most accomplished of Youth Brass Bands. After a period of rehearsals we not only performed in Switzerland but also travelled to Northern Italy to undertake performances. This was not only a wonderful musical experience but I so enjoyed seeing these European countries and making new friends in these countries".
