NYBBS in Norway: day five

Friday 1 July 2016

Richard Evans, Musical Director Emeritus of NYBBS, leading the band during the concert in Voss.


CELEBRATIONS were in order on day five of the National Youth Brass Band of Scotland's trip to Norway, with a birthday in camp.

Cornet player Callum Bain's special day was marked in style as the band enjoyed an evening barbeque and gigantic cake, courtesy of the wonderful staff at Åsane Folkehøgskole.

Earlier in the day, it had been an early start as NYBBS left camp bound for Voss, ready for the first official performance of the trip. Inclement weather meant that performing on the roof of the culture house was not an option. Instead, the arts hub's library was transformed into a concert hall for the afternoon, much to the delight of band members Rebecca Anderson, John Walker, Lynsay Brown and Mark Elwis...

The band then performed in front of an appreciative audience and assembled media. 

After soaking up the sights, it was time to return to camp for those all important birthday celebrations...
