The band will be performing a special concert with the extraordinary young percussionist Elliott Gaston-Ross on 2nd May 2015 at Kirkham Grammar School. You may have seen him performing on TV in 2014 throughout the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition. He went on to win the percussion final and appeared in the live concerto final performing with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra under award-winning conductor Kirill Karabits in the Usher Hall, Edinburgh.
Elliott will be performing solo works and also pieces with the band in the concert.
Elliott is currently studying at Kirkham Grammar School where the band’s conductor Paul Dalton teaches music, and the school hall is an ideal venue to showcase both Elliott and the band.
