Cumbria Youth Band

Supporting young brass players in Cumbria

Cumbria Youth Brass – CYB – is a youth brass band where young players in this huge county can meet, develop skills (in music, band management, event management) and perform together to build confidence and connections with other young players

A group of young people of different ages are playing brass instruments in a circle in a bright sunny room. There are music stands and music in front of each one.

Cumbria Youth Brass Band (CYB) offers young brass players aged 7- 17 of all abilities their own brass band.

Players can meet, develop skills for music and more, and perform with other players of a similar age group. 

Cumbria Youth Brass Band sessions will be held in different parts of the county to ensure access is available to everyone. We ask for a small contribution to cover the cost of the venue, sheet music and conductors travel costs. Sessions can booked on line.

Cumbria Youth Brass Band sessions may finish with a short concert for family and friends to showcase what players have achieved in the day and build performance experience.  

Cumbria Youth Brass Band sessions are planned for January, March, May and June and this year will finish in a concert performance at the Brass at the Castle event in July 2024.
