The Scottish Brass Band Association (SBBA) are delighted to announce that 2 of the 3 nominated young players have been selected by EBBA to represent Scotland as members of the European Youth Brass Band 2019 at the forthcoming European Brass Band Championships in Montreaux, Switzerland. Storm Robertson (Cornet) from the Bathgate Band and Gavin Johnson (Eb Bass) of The cooperation band were nominated by the staff of the National Youth Brass Band of Scotland (NYBBS) during the 2018 summer course at Strathallan, Perthshire.

Storm and Gavin will travel to Montreaux on 20th April 2019 and meet up with the rest of the young players from all over Europe, an experience that we’re certain will be a rewarding one both musically and socially.

The European Brass Band Association is pleased to announce the line-up of players who will form the 2019 European Youth Brass Band [EYBB] in Montreux.
