Members of Brighouse and Rastrick Band are tuning up for ‘A European Adventure’ at Halifax Minster on Saturday, April 9.

Joining B & R will be Elland Silver Youth Band, conducted by Samantha Harrison. Formed in 1995, the band has been National Youth champions in recent years and continues to develop as one of the most outstanding youth bands in the world.

B & R’s recently appointed musical director Leigh Baker will introduce the concert and, judging by the reaction to his first appearance in front of the band in Brighouse on December 12, the audience is in for a treat. Leigh’s forte is ‘entertainment’ and there are sure to be plenty of smiles at the Minster concert.

The band’s professional conductor, Prof David King, will direct a new piece of music which will be played at the forthcoming European Championships in France. Soloists will include Ryan Watkins, Alan Morrison and Sheona White.

The concert starts at 7.30pm and tickets at £12 and £10 are available from Kathleen Harrison on 01484 717126 or on the door.
