Rhythm Sectional 19.11.18

Thank you for all your hard work this term. The concert performance on Monday was excellent. It’s going to be a Rhythm sectional this coming Monday 19th November, so horns rest up and see you the week after as usual!


Fete de la Musique 24.6.18

A quick update on the Fete de la Musique on Sunday 24th June.

We will be playing 3pm – 3.40pm at the Castle.

More details to follow.


Thanks everyone for the Duxford gig last weekend. It’s not easy to play outside and under the beating sun, but you made a great sound, one of the best outdoor events I’ve heard you play at. And lovely to have a bit of sunshine to practice for Barcelona!

Good luck for all those revising and taking exams over the next few weeks. Rehearsals are still running. We have high-profile gigs coming up. You must let me know if for any reason you will be absent at a rehearsal ( ereed@swchs.net ), so that I can plan accordingly.

Check the Calendar page for upcoming events. The next two are the Fete de la Musique in town (24th June, details TBC) and the Summer Concert in Saffron Hall (5th July). NB: Concert Band have a gig in Little Chesterford Fete on 9th June.
