Halifax Youth Festival
Elland Silver Band has linked up with Halifax Minster to host the second Halifax Youth Brass Band Festival. The festival is being organised jointly by Samantha Harrison, MD of Elland Silver Youth and Training bands and Canon Hilary Barber from Halifax Minster. The event will commence at 2.00pm and conclude with the massed band performance at 5.00pm.
Samantha Harrison stated: "Following on from last year's successful event I'm delighted that we are able to repeat it. It's great to bring young people from different bands together to perform, watch and listen to each other. Halifax Minster is a wonderful venue, with excellent acoustics so it's an ideal venue."
The event will feature Elland Silver Youth and Training Bands, Dobcross Youth, HD9 Youth and the Red Admiral Youth Bands. Kathleen Harrison explained the aim of the festival: "Each band can play a short concert set that showcases their talents in full and we will finish things off with a massed band finale. It will also provide the opportunity for groups to listen and appreciate each other's playing."
