|Who Are We
||Bradford Concert Band is a concert band based in West Yorkshire that comprises players of woodwind (flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, saxophone), brass ( french horn, trumpet, trombone, euphonium, tuba) and percussion (drums, timpani, tuned percussion).
||We are an amateur community band comprising members from all walks of life, with ages ranging from teenage to over 80. We were formed in 1975 and have been making music in West Yorkshire area for nearly 50 years.
||We play a wide range of music including stage, musical, film and television music, arrangements of light popular music, marches, formal overtures, some of our own arrangements and novelty numbers.
||We rehearse every week at Baildon Hall (Band Room) on Thursdays 7.30pm - 9.30pm and Sundays 10.00am - 12 noon.
|Events & Venues
||We play concerts throughout the year in local parks and other venues around Bradford and Leeds (and sometimes beyond). We also play lots of festive carolling / busking sessions around Christmas.
||We are always working on a selection of new pieces in order to build a programme for future concerts, music being selected to cater for all players. Rehearsals are disciplined, hardworking, great fun and inspire members to take music home and work on those all-important tricky bits!
||We are a very friendly and sociable band with social activities including quiz nights, theatre/musical visits, meals out, local walks and the occassional weekend away.
||More information about the band can be found in other sections of the website.
||If you are a woodwind, brass or percussion player, of grade 5 standard or above and are looking for an enjoyable place to play and to make some new musical friends, you're welcome to join us at a rehearsal. Contact our Musical Director email@example.com for further information.
