On the 24th February the Shepherd Group Youth Brass Band attended the regional Music for Youth festival held at St. Aidan’s School, Harrogate. Fresh from their recent tour, the band played superbly and received impressive comments from the music mentors and audience. The ten minute programme included Alan Fernie’s ‘Prismatic Light’, ‘When I Grow Up’ from the musical Matilda and finished with the main theme from ‘Game of Thrones’.  Whilst the event is not a competition there are certain groups who are invited to perform at the next stage of the festival which takes place at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall. The band are now looking forward to performing at the Hive (Manor School) alongside the Shepherd Group Brass Band on the 10th March.
