A message from our Artistic Director – Chris Jeans

On 2nd April 2017, we successfully defended our title at the National Youth Championships of Great Britain. Below is a message from our Artistic Director - Chris Jeans following this fabulous result...

I am so proud of every member of the band as Youth Brass 2000 has been so busy over the past few months.

So Youth Brass 2000 has put themselves into the history book to be the first ever youth band to achieve four wins in a row at  the National Youth Champions of Great Britain in the Championship Section. Add this to winning a double hat-trick of wins at the British Open Youth Championships in 2017 is just a dream come true. I have been the Artistic Director of Music since the band was formed exactly 28 years on the day of the National Youth Championships so this is so special!  To win the championships once is fantastic but to win it 4 years in a row is simply in unbelievable!!

Youth Brass 2000 win the 2017 National Youth Championships
