Since the formation of the South Cheshire Concert Band in November 2014 we have been fortunate to receive regular support from Crewe Town Council, in the form of grants to help with the purchase of equipment and music.
We are very grateful for this support and hope it will continue in the future.
South Cheshire Concert Band has vacancies for players of woodwind, brass and percussion instruments, who have reached the standard of Associated Board Grade 5 or equivalent. We also have a vacancy for an experienced keyboard player.
If you would like to join us, please contact our secretary via the contact form on our Home page or come along to a rehearsal on a Wednesday evening at Wistaston Memorial Hall, Crewe. CW2 8EZ
Don't be shy, come and try it out!
As part of the wider structure of the Band, we provide opportunities for ensemble playing for Band members.
We currently have a clarinet choir, a saxophone ensemble and a brass ensemble. These are organised and run by players from the relevant sections and are open to all Band members.
Please contact us for further information about these groups.
We are very pleased to announce that the Band has now reformed and we held our first rehearsal since March 2020 on the evening of Wednesday 1st September. It was wonderful to see everyone again and our rehearsal went extremely well. We were quite amazed at how quickly we were able to start playing as a group again and by the end of the evening it was as if we had never been away!
All of the existing Band members who were able to do so attended the rehearsal and we were very pleased to welcome several new members.
Our next rehearsal will be on Wednesday 8th September and I think everyone is looking forward to playing some new pieces in addition to favourites from our extensive repertoire.
