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.
