Concert Band

Membership of the Concert Band is open to all woodwind, brass and percussion players of at least Grade 7 standard with ensemble playing experience, subject to the need to maintain an appropriate balance between different sections.

There are no formal auditions, but we invite prospective new members to participate in three rehearsals to enable the Band to get to know you, and for you to get to know us. Membership is then at the discretion of the Musical Director. For more information please contact the Musical Director.

Training Band

Our Training Band welcomes less experienced players, and aims to give them the opportunity to develop their skills. As with the Concert Band, we operate a trial period rather than holding auditions. For information about the Training Band please contact the Conductor.

Application Form
