The CYBigB is the senior big band of the Music and Performing Arts Trust. The director for the 2014 – 2015 season is Jon Lloyd.

The band was formed in the 1980's by Head of Brass, Bob Jackson. Since then under the direction of Rachel Coles, John Greaves, Peter Dunkley, Ray Meadham, John Long and Richard Baker it has built a national reputation for consistent quality.

The band draws its repertoire from the whole range of music for Big Bands, from traditional to modern: Duke Ellington to Pat Metheny. Members are encouraged to develop and use their improvisation skills in rehearsal and performance, with all contributions to the group valued equally.

They have enjoyed success at the National Concert Band Festival and National Festival of Music for Youth, with several invitations to perform at the Schools' Proms in the Royal Albert Hall. They have toured to Northampton's twin town of Plzen in the Czech Republic and performed in Westminster at Portcullis House to then Secretary of State for Education, Ed Balls.
