We are always looking to broaden our range of instruments, develop individual abilities, and extend members’ experience of playing in a group, so if you have experience in wind band playing and would like to join us please get in touch via the ‘Contact Us’ page.


We are currently particularly looking to recruit members for the Lower Brass Section and bassoon players.
