Leeds Silver Steel Sparrows

Leeds Silver Steel Sparrows hatched out in 1999. They are a Leeds youth steelband [part of City of Leeds Youth Music at Leeds ArtForms]. The Sparrows rehearse term time only from 5.30 to 7 on Tuesdays, usually at All Hallows' Community Church Hall, Hyde Park, Leeds. Visitors are welcome to come and observe after 6.30 - just send an email first to let us know if you want to come.

Players should be generally be high school age, but younger players can be accepted, and do succeed.

The Sparrows play everywhere from local primary school summer fairs to Leeds Town Hall to St Paul's Cathedral, but we are careful not to put them on the big stages before they ready.

Band leader is Victoria Jaquiss, with support from Chris Greer.
