YBS-era to an end?

· December 13, 2006

Well, this is probably no news to people reading 4BarsRest, but one of the most successful bands in later years (ever?) is being dis-assembled as we speak (?).

Since Sunday all of the key players and the conductor has left the band in a single file:

  • David King - conductor and primus motor for the band since 13 years
  • Sheona White - solo horn
  • Steven Walsh - solo euphonium, who by the way made the gutsiest move in the business by stepping up to take up the solo euphonium chair after Morgan Griffiths. Respect!
  • Stuart Linguard - principal cornet

I can’t imaging how the band has planned to cope with these problems but i hope they do! YBS stands for a quality above the rest and probably have improved the brass band movement as a whole with their performances. I, for one, has listen to some recordings of test pieces over a hundred times (yes, i am a nerd…)
