Pictures of Youth – a look at some early views of the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain

The National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain was founded in 1952, following two earlier massed children’s concerts arranged in 1947 and 1950, both of which were conducted by Denis Wright who went on to become the first Music Advisor of the Band.

The Band, for children aged 14 to 19, usually holds two residential courses each year, at Easter and in the early summer holidays, during which there is intensive musical tuition from leading instrumentalists and guest conductors.

The paper below shows the group photographs from a number of the early courses, from 1957 to 1962. I would be interested to hear from anyone who has similar pictures from other years of the NYBBGB courses.
