2nd Section

St. David's Brass

Originally formed in 1981 as St. David's High School Brass Band, it was comprised of school pupils from St. David's High School under the baton of John A Dickson. The band's first contesting appearance came in 1986 at the Scottish Youth Championships winning at the first attempt. Following this, in 1991 the band broke new ground and entered the Scottish Championships Fourth Section for the first time.
In 1997 the band adopted a formal constitution with the name St. David's Brass Band and registered as a Scottish Charity. In 1998 the band won its first senior event by winning the Scottish 4th Section. Since then, the senior band has advanced through the sections to its current place.
Under the continuing guidance of conductor John A Dickson, the organisation has the senior band which competes in the Scottish Championships and a youth band  which competes in the Scottish Youth Brass Band Championships

The band is based in Gorebridge and rehearsals are held at Vogrie Hall, 33 Vogrie Road, Gorebridge, Midlothian,
