Elland Youth Brass Band has been crowned Action Medical Research Entertainment Champions 2012.

Its musical production “A Girl In New York” at the Winter Gardens, Blackpool, led the band to victory in both the music and entertainment categories and the band collected six trophies in total.

Musical director Samantha Harrison said the youngsters excelled.

“I was thrilled with the performance,” she said.

“We have a very young band, but weeks’ of preparation - rehearsing every weekend since Christmas - really paid off.”
