About the Band In Brief
The Cornwall Youth Brass Band is the oldest county youth band in the United Kingdom. It was founded in 1955 and held its first residential course in 1959, the start of a long tradition, which has continued without a break until the present time. The Band now holds two four-day courses a year, at Christmas and Easter, each culminating in a public concert. Typically, around 60 young musicians will be involved in a course, which will be led by a guest conductor of renown from the brass band world. The band is financially self-supporting. It is a registered charity (number 1116586) and is constituted as a company limited by guarantee (number 5796499) registered in England.
