The Sandwich Concert 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. Nonetheless we strive to perform at a high standard and ask that Concert Band musicians are at least Grade 5 standard for section players and higher for solo parts. Less experienced players of all ages between Grades 1 or 2 through to 4 can join the Training Band and progress to the Concert Band. There is usually a mutual trial period of 3 weeks where each of us can assess the other. Please don’t be put off by this, we’re a welcoming and supporting bunch and it’s very rare that we can’t accommodate players within our sections! Although we are a wind band, keyboard and string players have joined us in the percussion section and we would welcome more! The Band own timpani, kit and assorted other percussion – they just need players! We currently have vacancies in all sections but especially for the following instruments: Bassoon Alto Saxophone Tenor Saxophone French Horn Trumpet Cornet Trombone Tuba Percussion including Kit & Timpani Rehearsals are held on Tuesday evenings – The Jubilee Centre, Jubilee Road, Sandwich, CT14 0QP Training Band rehearse from 6.00pm and finish at 7.00pm Concert Band rehearse from 7.15pm and finish at 9.15pm. There’s a break at around 8:15pm. We are also happy to welcome new players to join us please be in touch first (email: ) as we have procedures in place to keep everyone safe. Our Concert Band is aimed at brass, woodwind and percussion players from Grade 5 level, and our Training Band is suitable for players of Grade 1 upwards. We look forward to seeing you!
