Youth Brass 2000 has teamed up with Centre Stage Percussion with a three year endorsement agreement.
Following on from completing a 2018 Grand Slam Youth Brass 2000 are delighted to have entered a three year endorsement agreement with Centre Stage Percussion, the band’s percussion section now having access to the full range of Centre Stage mallets and beaters and the company supporting the bands access to percussion instruments.
Mark Gilding of Youth Brass 2000 said, “This is great news for us to have the support of Centre Stage Percussion assisting us in providing amazing opportunities for young musicians. At the end of June the band has been invited to perform a series of concerts in Leeuwarden the 2018 European City of Culture and when we return the same week involves performances at Music for Youth and a joint ‘Champions in Concert’ evening with Brighouse & Rastrick, then through the summer we have been invited to perform at Kneller Hall with the Corps of Army Music and a tour of Lake Garda. With the support of sponsors we have replaced our drum kit and bass drum which will be in action straight away. Centre Stage offers a great range of percussion instruments and accessories and it is a pleasure to be able access and endorse their range of sticks and mallets.”
“Our next challenge is to replace our Bb tuba and increase sponsorship so that we can maintain the success and opportunities our band can provide young musicians. If anyone would like to discuss how they can help the band we would love to hear from them!”
Martin Gernon, MD of Centre Stage percussion is equally thrilled. “Youth Brass 2000 represent the very best in youth banding today. They are a terrific organization, made up of an incredible conductor and back room staff along with a huge array of very talented players. We are delighted to enter this endorsement agreement with the band and look forward to sharing in their continued success in months and years to come”
