Are you a woodwind, brass or tuned percussion player? If so COME AND JOIN US!
Newark & Sherwood Concert Band was set up about 17 years ago and we have over 50 members who attend rehearsals every Tuesday evening. We are a friendly group of musicians and the emphasis is very much on FUN.
However, although we are of varying grades, several of our members are professionals/Diploma graduates and we perform to a high standard and take our music seriously. Your age is immaterial; we have members who are still at school, right through to those who have retired.
Our Musical Director is Colum O'Shea - young, dynamic, full of enthusiasm with some great ideas for the future. We have several concerts booked throughout the year; playing at inside and outside venues (weather permitting)! All are welcome - come and join us.
Our music library contains everything from traditional military marches to film themes. We have a large selection of classical pieces as well as some more contemporary tunes. All of this is maintained by our wonderful librarian Brilliant Bob, one of our alto saxophone players - bless his cotton socks!
Our finances are looked after by our new treasurer Super Shelby, who is also our euphonium player.
In 2009 we were awarded £10,000 by the lottery funded 'Awards for All' programme, which enabled us to buy a comprehensive range of percussion instruments and other items of equipment which give the band a very professional appearance.
