It is the band’s first annual concert under its new resident conductor Joshua Parkhill, who was appointed in June and is a recent First Class Honours graduate of music from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

Members of Kinneil Youth Band will also feature during the concert.

A spokesperson for Kinneil Band said: “We continue to offer free tuition, music and instruments to around 18 local children from the local community and we cannot wait to show off the talents of these youngsters once again this year. The band have many exciting plans that we are working towards for the end of the 2023 season, including competition appearances at Fife Charities Competition in September, The Scottish Open in November and of course our busy Christmas concert series, which begins in December.”

The band are also working towards rebuilding their band hall that was destroyed by fire in June 2019.
