The Concert Band is the next natural stepping stone from the Youth Band and provides an opportunity for players of an intermediate level to gain more experience of performing. The aim of the band, under the enthusiastic direction of Mike Pratt, is to provide a more light-hearted and fun form of musical entertainment to the public, whilst working to develop the ability and technique of the players.
Concert Band at Hardraw Scar Contest
The Concert Band entertains audiences throughout the year during its very busy concert schedule, and has had its own taste of contesting success in recent years and has become a regular competitor at both the Ripon Entertainments Contest and the Hardraw Scar Contest. The band maintains the high standard of a third/fourth section band, but it isn’t registered. This is simply to allow players to play in both the Concert Band and the Senior Band.
Our Concert Band rehearses on Wednesdays at 7:30pm at the HiBay Conference Centre on the Portakabin™ site in Huntington, York.
If you would like to become part of this exciting, fun-loving ensemble then please find out more on our VACANCIES page.
