Our season opens with the 2018 French Open Champion, Carlton Main Frickley Colliery Band. Formed originally in 1884 in the village of South Elmsall, the band adopted the name of the local colliery in 1923. During the band’s long and successful history, it has won virtually every honour possible. The band recently qualified to represent Yorkshire at the 2019 National Championship. With Yorkshireman Ian McElligott as Musical Director, the band is fortunate to have many truly world class musicians in its ranks including the internationally renowned Principal Cornet player Kirsty Abbotts.
This concert is part of the Leeds Best of Brass 2019/20 series.
