The University of Bradford will showcase the best Yorkshire musical talent on Saturday 31st January at 7.30pm.

The concert from the Yorkshire Building Society's (YBS) Brass Band will also feature special guest appearances from David Morris, the World's Top Whistler and the Hebden Bridge Junior Band.

YBS is one of the most successful and innovative of all contesting brass bands with roots going back 150 years to 1855, when a brass band was formed as one of the amenities for the people of Saltaire.

David Morris is a professional whistling artist. He performs as a soloist with orchestra, concert and brass band and has won the title of World Whistling Champion at the global event in the USA. David's perfect pitch and style have to be heard to be believed.

The Hebden Bridge Junior Band pioneer opportunities for young aspiring brass players and have recently received much critical attention including appearances on the BBC's One Show, Look North, Radio Leeds, Radio 2's Brass Britain series and a double page spread in the Guardian.
