There's a very special opportunity for all brass players at this year's Wymondham Music Festival.

David Childs, acknowledged as one of the world's greatest euphonium players, will be performing a concert on Saturday, June 21. The organisers have arranged for him to lead a brass workshop in the morning of the same day. The workshop will take place in the North Wymondham Community Centre from 10am to noon. The fee will be £5.

If you would like to take part, the organisers have asked that you book in advance - give Barbara Randall a call on 01953 601939, or visit the festival's website at www.wymfestival.org.uk

If you're grade 3 or above and play any brass instrument, then this workshop is a wonderful opportunity to learn a few hints and tips and have fun with a real master of his art. In 2000, David was the first ever euphonium player to win the BBC Young Musician of the Year, and he has continued to wow audiences with his astonishing technique, extrovert musicality and engaging stage presence ever since.
