Victorian State Youth Brass Band to be revived through historic partnership

The Victorian Bands' League in partnership with Skunkworks Community Limited is pleased to announce the re-establishment of the Victorian State Youth Brass Band.

20211127 VYSBB PicThe Band is open to young brass and percussion musicians up to the age of 25 and will promote and inspire young people to develop their musical talents to their fullest ability. The re-establishment of the Victorian State Youth Brass Band will again bring together our best young brass and percussion musicians and ensure the continued vibrancy of our community and professional performing arts sector.

Representing an exciting new direction within the VBL, this is a partnership that will also result in an expanded range of services to community bands.

"This is a fantastic opportunity for young musicians from across the entire state of Victoria to gain top level musical direction and performance opportunities whilst creating friendships that will last a lifetime."

Megan Stapleton, VBL President
