Highlight of the year
Summer Sounds is the bands annual week long workshop. It sees the band practice twice a day for a week culminating in a concert which is the highlight of the year for our supporters and players alike.
The band will once again be led by Allan Ramsay, conductor of the Scottish Champion Band Co-Operative Funeral Care Band. Allan is one of the most successful conductors in the brass band world and is renowned for producing entertaining programs and getting exciting performances from his bands.
