BB On the Record: Tuba virtuoso Ross Knight on life as an orchestral musician in Switzerland - and how brass bands helped him get there

Friday 8 May, 2020

Tuba virtuoso Ross Knight chats to British Bandsman editor Mark Good about life with the Orchestra de la Suisse Romande and how the orchestra is adapting to life in lockdown.

Ross, a former winner of the former BBC Radio 2 Young Brass Award, now run by BrassPass, reflects on how his grounding in brass bands has helped shape the musician he has become. He discusses life with the Carnoustie and District Youth Brass Band and fond memories at the National Youth Brass Band of Scotland, learning under the likes of Richard Evans, Craig Anderson and Les Neish.

Ross, who retains great affection for the brass band world, also discusses ways banding might be able to change for the better.
