All of the brass players are pupils of the conductor Michael Robertson. The band has gone from strength to strength taking the title of the best British Youth Brass Band in Great Britain for the last two years.

Enter the Galaxies was written by Paul Lovatt-Cooper and takes its inspiration from the fantastic space exploration man has experienced during the last century. Featuring the band’s solo horn player, it is a vibrant and exciting work. Dundonnell is the final movement in a larger work entitled Hymn of the Highlands. Its opening rousing theme leads on to an exciting fanfare followed by a highly technical faster section and finishes with the theme from the beautiful hymn Highland Cathedral.
