Macclesfield Youth Brass Band has opened its summer season with some dazzling performances from the Training Band, Junior Band and Drum Corps at Wildboarclough Rose Queen Fete. The sun didn’t quite manage to dazzle as well, but it was warm and dry, and the music managed to stay on the stands most of the time!
Here’s one of our two young soloists from the Junior Band making her debut. It was also the first summer “job” for several Training Band players and you will see from the other photos on our Facebook page that they soon got into the swing of things.
