The XBY (ex Bromley Youth Concert Band) is a premier symphonic wind band based at Bromley Youth Music Trust.  The Band was formed nearly thirty years ago by alumni of BYMT and led by maestro Dennis Mycroft. Over this time XBY Concert Band has won both national and international competitions, regularly performing at the World Music Content (WMC) and performing the most challenging works for symphonic wind bands.  In addition XBY supports the current Bromley Youth Concert Band in shared concerts and regularly performs in the local community, such as the St George’s Festival in Beckenham.


Monday evenings from 7.30pm to 9.30pm.  Term time only.  At BYMT, Southborough Lane, Bromley BR2 8AA.


Entrance to this Band is by invitation only. Membership comprises of players who were previously in the Bromley Youth Concert Band.  There are occasional exceptions.
