Youth Band

The Comber Brass Youth Band was formed in September 2022 and is a strategic initiative by Comber Brass to help secure the future of local brass banding, and the contribution it makes to the musical arts and culture of  the  Ards & North Down area.

The band currently has around 20 enthusiastic young musicians, ranging in age from 8 to 15 years old, who meet regularly on a  Tuesday evening for an hour of rehearsal.  New members are always welcome to join, so please make contact if you are interested or would like to find out more about the band.
