London in 2011.

The Band, with members aged from

In 2011 the Victorian State Youth Brass Band will be travelling to Europe where they will be performing in many of Europe's best concert halls, parks and venues. The Band will visit Germany, Belgium, UK, France, and Austria whilst passing through many of the other neighbouring countries.
