River Brass Youth Band
The River Brass Youth Bands (est. 2019) are open to any brass and percussion students who are currently in grades 6-12 and are free to participate in. Starting in January 2020, we will have a middle school band and a high school band. For a description of instrumentation, continue reading after the form below.
The high school band will be directed by Ms. Becky Simpkins. She is the instrumental music director at Signature School and has been a member of River Brass since 2006, currently playing 2nd cornet. She directed the youth band for last year's summer session and is excited to return to the group.
