The Senior section of the Tewit Youth Band is made up of 32 young people between the ages of 11 and 18 who undertake the majority of the engagements and activities for the organisation. Entry is open to anyone who is equal to grade 5 or over and is willing to rehearse once a week with around 30 engagements a year.
The Senior Band has performed in the Royal Festival Hall, London, Symphony Hall, Birmingham and has toured Europe on a number of occasions, including Prague in 2008, Germany in 2012 and 2014, Luchon, France in 2012 and 2016 and Canada in 2019. This year the band will go to Montecattini and represent Harrogate.
You can recognise the Senior Band by their bright Red blazers at many engagements, including parades in and out of Harrogate, the Whit Friday marches, the Harrogate International Youth Music festival and in concert on their own or with other brass bands.
