CYBB - The Cornish Charity That Helps Young Brass Band Musicians Take Their Playing to New Heights

Band members benefit every year from two four-day residential courses. These are directed by leading conductors from the brass band world, and outstanding levels of performance are achieved in the Gala Concerts that provide the climax to every course.



Please help us to help produce the musicians of tomorrow.
We now have to raise over 20,000 a year to fund this work. 100% of every 1 you donate will help our young musicians.

All our Trustees and local tutors give their time without charge.

Cornet Solos

Sandy Smith was engaged to appear as a guest horn soloist but was unable to appear. Richard Marshall kindly stood in for him at short notice. The programme does not record what he played. From memory Richard believes this would have included Kim by Alan Street, Zelda by Percy Code and Adagio from Rachmaninov's Second Symphony.
