It's the final day of the Music For Youth Schools Prom, and Classic FM's Tim Lihoreau has been backstage at the Royal Albert Hall chatting to the performers of tonight's concert. Here he meets the members of the Dudley Performing Arts Wind Band.
The band consists of young people drawn from schools and colleges across the Dudley Metropolitan Borough. They rehearse for an hour each week and is just one ensemble in a network of ensembles providing performance opportunities for instrumentalists at all levels from beginners to more advanced players and for all genres including orchestras, brass bands, contemporary groups and choirs.
The band have a long tradition at the Schools Prom - both of the band’s conductors took part in the same event (many years ago!) when they were students.
