Classic FM Drive with John Brunning 5pm - 7pm
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 Wardle High School Brass Band.
The band hail from the tiny village of Wardle, nestled in the foothills of the Pennines just two miles north of Rochdale.
Wardle High School, founded in 1977, soon earned a reputation as a centre of excellence for music. The schools musical groups have appeared at the Schools Prom every year since its formation. The current school band have had an extremely successful year when in April they became National Youth Brass Band Champions of Great Britain in the Intermediate section.
Classic FM's Tim Lihoreau caught up with members of the brass band before their performance at the Schools Prom.
