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 400618 / 07971 238290.


We rehearse every Saturday morning in term times, from 9:30am until 12:00pm

Covid-19 Pandemic

Regulations have allowed us to resume rehearsing in a controlled and safe way.

Numbers may still be limited, so will we have to ask that everyone who comes to rehearsal has prior agreement for that week. This may require standing back from your section one week so that someone else can take part, or coming to agreements between yourselves.

Rehearsal invitations and bookings are being managed on Muzodo. If you are not on the mailing list, please contact the committee.

All at Southwick Methodist Church unless shown otherwise
