Talented CBA musicians win European competition

Three musicians from Corby Business Academy are amongst the best young musicians in Europe.

Students Louie and Evie Anderson and Joshua Gilding are all members of Youth Brass 2000 which came second in the 2016 European Championships earlier this month.

The talented band has won a series of top awards already this year and were only one point behind the European winners.

Year 10 student Louie plays cornet with the band.

He said: “It’s impressive that we were runners-up and the experience definitely inspires you to keep playing.”

Louie’s sister Evie, who is a Year 7 student abd also plays the cornet, added: “We were the youngest band at the festival by quite a way and I think we performed really well.”

So far this year the band has won the National Youth Entertainment Championship, British Open Youth Championship, National Mineworkers Brass Band Festival and the British National Youth Championship.

The band will perform at Music for Youth Festival in Birmingham in July.
