Leeds Best of Brass 2019/20: Leyland Band

Founded in 1946 in the heart of industrial Lancashire, Leyland celebrated its 70th anniversary in 2016. The band has forged a reputation for quality performance coupled with innovative and engaging repertoire and its quality is reinforced with an impressive list of titles – British Open Champion, National Champion of Great Britain, five times Brass in Concert Champion, All England Masters Champion – all achieved since its emergence on the national scene in the early 1980’s. The band has also proudly represented England in competition at the European Brass Band Championship twice since the turn of the millennium.

One of the most sought after brass ensembles on the concert platform, Leyland Band regularly performs in all parts of the UK, with frequent international appearances. Audiences in the Royal Albert Hall, London to The Waterfront Hall, Belfast have warmed to Leyland’s sound. Repertoire ranging from the traditional to contemporary, presented in eclectic mixes or themed sets, Leyland Band always seeks to engage positively with the audience. The band performs internationally boasting appearances in the United States of America, Japan, South Korea, all the major European countries and Scandinavia.

Leyland Band is proud of its deserved reputation for recognising and developing new young musical talent, through work with renowned conductors and its own established music teachers, challenging the brass band stereotype. Allied to that is the bands openness to new music and new composers, regularly providing a platform for new work to be heard. Regular radio and television appearances, and recordings add to the diversity of the body of work this great progressive ensemble produces.

Leyland Band is proud to be ambassadors for its home town of Leyland, Lancashire and the UK through its musical excellence and presentation.  

This concert is part of the Leeds Best of Brass 2019/20 series.
