The children's band is for children from 8-13 approx, and past members include Peter Moore the trombonist who won BBC young musician of the year at 12. To give an idea of how hard they all work in the children's band they do approx 5 hours a day rehearing and in the youth band about 9 hours a day.
It is credit to the teachers at school that he has achieved this level of playing and if anyone is in the area and enjoys brass bands they will be concerts that'll be worth going to. The children's band concert would be suiable for children. The youth band repertoire is more challenging and more akin to your standard classical concert so I personally wouldn't recommend it for very young children unless they are a bit of a brass band afficionado. Please tell anyone you know who might be interested.

I have persuaded Hugh Lindley, Band Captain, to come and play with our village band.
So if anyone is in the Denia/Javea area, he and I will be playing in the fiestas in Sagra from August 6 - 8, and in Rafol August 11 - 14.
Not quite concerts but good fun.
