Fifth Form pupil Matt Osborne has just been selected to play in the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain (NYBB).

The NYBB and the National Children’s Brass Band of Great Britain (NCBB) are the UK’s leading brass bands for children and teenagers.

The band exists to give exceptionally gifted young brass instrumentalists the opportunity to perform advanced music and receive the highest quality teaching and support, to provide the brass band movement and the music profession with the next generation of brass players.

Not only does the band provide talented youngsters with opportunities to play brass music to the highest standard, it also improves their musicianship and musical horizons.

Commenting on Matt’s selection, our Director of Music, Colin Albery, said: “I am delighted that Matthew has had success on a national stage now. Matthew contributes a huge amount to the music at King's playing in orchestras, bands and singing in choirs. He has a very busy life here. As well as music, he is fully involved in our co-curricular activities and enjoys high level sports and outdoor pursuits. He’s going to be even busier now in his holidays!”
