Devon County Youth Brass Band -

10th Anniversary Gala Concert

The Devon County Youth Brass Band (DCYBB) has been active for ten years and this is their 10th Anniversary Gala Concert. The DCYBB is the brainchild of musical director and conductor, Peter Jones - this concert, held in association with the Friends of the Tavistock Music & Arts Festival, will include present and past members of DCYBB and will be a musical extravaganza.

Peter was born in Hartlepool and spent fifteen years in the Blues and Royals; he now lives in Tavistock. The Band’s Patron is television celebrity, Angela Rippon, who is hoping, depending on her many commitments, to join us for this celebration event.

DCYBB is a band of young people, aged 11 - 24 years old, of Grade 4 and above/equivalent who come from all over Devon - several from the Tavistock area. They play all over Devon, at concerts and events, such as the Devon County Show. They were involved in a workshop with the world championship winners, Cory Brass Band.

They are run by the Friends of DCYBB and rely on grants, fund-raising and donations to exist. Anyone wishing to get in touch or to support the band should contact us though our website:

Tickets £5 (students - £3) from the Wharf Arts Centre Box Office; or £6 (students - £3) on the door
