A band spokesperson commented, 'We are very excited to be hosting another afternoon of workshops in partnership with South Lanarkshire Council’s Instrumental Services. We look forward to working with Helen and it is set to be a fun and educational day for all. We are grateful to the Scottish Brass Band Association and Creative Scotland for the financial support received for this event.'

The event is open to anyone with an interest in brass regardless of experience. Beginners are also welcome. Scott Kerr, principal euphonium with the Whitburn Band will also be leading masterclasses with the Intermediate and Silver Bands and giving feedback to the band soloists. Organisers ask that everyone arrives from 10am for registration and extend an open invitation to family and friends to join for a short concert at 3pm for a concert featuring all participants.

The free concert will feature a performance from Scott and a performance from the Coalburn Percussion Academy who will be working with percussion tutor Sarah Naish.
