Youth music composition is performed on video by Whitburn Band

Wednesday 29 September 2021

Whitburn Band has video recorded pieces of music by Alan Fernie, Cameron Mabon and Iain Mundy which have been specifically written for youth bands as part of a SBBA Composers Project.

The project was made possible through funding from Creative Scotland and each composer conducted his own music.

This first recording is entitled Voyager by Cameron Mabon, a teacher at Berwickshire High School who studied music at Edinburgh University and is actively involved with several bands in the Borders. He is pictured below conducting Whitburn Band.

Each composition has been published by Just Music, whose proprietor is Nigel Durno, to whom SBBA would like to pass on its thanks for the video productions.

Thanks also go to members of Whitburn Band who were happy to give up some of their London preparation time to perform the music.
