Welcome to the Sandwich Concert Band! The   Sandwich   Concert   Band   was   formed   in   2011   from   members   of   the   former   Pfizer   Wind   Orchestra;   a   group   which   ceased performing following the announcement earlier that year by Pfizer to close their facility at Sandwich. The   Band   is   a   community   organisation   constituted   through   Making   Music    and   welcomes   young   and   not-so-young   players   of wind,   brass   and   percussion   instruments   without   audition,   but   nonetheless   striving   to   perform   at   a   high   standard.      Our   Concert Band   musicians   are   at   least   Grade   5   standard   and   comprise   a   number   of   music   teachers   and   former   professional   musicians.     Less   experienced   players   perform   with   the   Training   Band   which   encourages   and   develops   those   playing   at   approximately Grades 1 or 2 upwards. If you are interested in joining either group, please see the Recruitment  section. During   the   year   the   Band   perform   at   around   4   or   5   concerts   or   events,   including   bandstands   and   outdoor   concerts   in   the summer   and   a   festive   concert   at   Christmas.      The   music   is   diverse   and   chosen   to   suit   the   occasion   but   will   include   a   mix   of marches,   classical   transcriptions,   music   from   films   and   shows   as   well   as   good   symphonic   band   music.      Programmes   often include music that features sections from the Band or individuals in solo numbers. The   Sandwich   Concert   Band   is   also   able   to   provide   smaller   wind   ensembles   for   local   functions   and   events.      If   you   are interested in having the full band or an ensemble perform at your event, please Contact  us.
