Playing with the band

The Adur Concert Band is an adult group and welcomes new members of age 18 and over. We have players of all standards although those who have not reached grade 5 standard may find the music challenging.

We play a stimulating range of music, including show and film themes, popular standards and special concert band arrangements.

The band performs regularly throughout the year (see our Concerts page), and travels away for weekends in the UK and Europe to perform. We also host or take part in band weekends away, to develop music skills, relax and have fun.

If you would like to join us, email our musical director Andy Burchfield or call on 01444 235311.
