The Concert Band comprises around 30 amateur players of varying ability. As a general guideline musicians should have reached a standard equivalent to ABRSM Grade 5 or Trinity Grade 5 although there is no requirement to have passed any music exams. Players are not required to audition!
The range of music the band plays is broad including concert band arrangements of symphonic pieces and overtures, music from Broadway and West End shows, film scores, easy listening, TV themes and arrangements of popular music.
Concert Band rehearsals are held from 19.30hrs-21.30hrs on Thursdays in St George's Church Hall, St George's Church, Gravesend. New members are welcome to turn up to any rehearsal although prior notice is always appreciated if for no other reason than to make sure that a part is available!
For further details or to enquire about joining, please come along to a rehearsal or contact us beforehand. New players are welcomed at any time. We'll be delighted to see you!
