Wantage Youth Brass is the newest addition to the Wantage organisation, forming in September 2021. We are delighted that Sara-Jane Wallbridge, flugel player with Wantage Band, is our Musical Director. At our first rehearsal we were lucky enough to be joined by Mayor Jim Sibbald and the Lord Lieutenant of Oxfordshire, who wished us luck with our new venture. We are thrilled to have attracted eighteen enthusiastic young players already and are looking forward to our first concert at Christmas 2021.
MD Sara-Jane Wallbridge is a freelance teacher of brass and tutors in many local schools. In the last two years, she has worked tirelessly to bring on a generation of young players who will play with Wantage Band for many years to come. Sara is hugely enthusiastic about Wantage Youth Brass and invites young players from across the county to attend. If your child plays brass or percussion and is under 16, please get in touch.
