Members of the Cheshire Police Drum Corps travelled from all over Cheshire, despite the snow, to show the keen youngsters at Macclesfield Youth Brass Band just what a drum corps can do. Around 15 of MYBB’s own percussionists, aged 7 to 17 years plus a few parents, were soon learning to march, play the different drums and even swing the sticks.
Louise Renshaw, MYBB chair said,
“Today has been a lot of fun. We are now inspired to start our own drum corps and will be looking to acquire suitable instruments, harnesses and sticks as soon as possible. I think it will be a fantastic addition to the three brass bands that we already run and I can’t wait to see them performing in public”
