Following the resignation of long serving Chairman Leonard Adams, the Trustees of the Band are pleased to welcome Brian Minear as the new Chairman of the Cornwall Youth Brass Band.

Brian joined the Band as a young cornet player not long after its formation and took part in the first Residential Course of the Band in 1959, attending nine Courses in all.

Since then he has maintained an active connection with the Band, for many years helping the young musicians of the Band as a Tutor, and taking the role of Senior Tutor from 2008 to 2011. 

In addition to existing Vice Chairman, James Gore, the Trustees have appointed a second Vice Chairman, Matthew Julian. As a young Trustee, Matthew is tasked with the particular role of maintaining a close liaison, on behalf of the Trustees, with the musicians of the Band.

There is no doubt that these new appointments, made in the Band’s 60th year, will enable it to continue to expand the musical horizons of its eighty young member musicians.
