The Classic FM Chart with Nicholas Owen 5pm - 7pm
The Gloucestershire Youth Brass Band was formed in April 2005 to provide young brass and percussion players with the opportunity to perform at the very highest level of youth music making.
Through the support of Gloucestershire Music and the Gloucestershire Brass Band Association, the Gloucestershire Youth Brass Band has worked with many of the country’s leading conductors and soloists and performs at concerts and youth music festivals including Music for Youth and the National Youth Brass Band Championships. Today’s performance is a real highlight for the band and their supporters as it is the band's first performance at the Royal Albert Hall.
