Musicians to represent England at European Brass Band Championship

Four talented musicians from Sir John Deane’s Sixth Form College will be travelling to Switzerland next year to compete in the European Youth Brass Band Championship.

Ella Ronald, Abbie Webb, Emma Drew and Daisy Dalton will represent England with the Lions Youth Band, following their 2nd place in the championship section of the National Youth Brass Band Championships last month.

There was also added delight for Ella, a former County High School, Leftwich student, who has been promoted to principal cornet of the band starting in September.

Alison Richards, Head of Performing Arts at Sir John Deane’s Sixth Form College, said: “This is an incredible achievement for all the girls and everyone associated with the Lions Youth Brass Band. We wish them all the best of luck in the competition.”
