Calling all musicians!
On behalf of the Director of Music and I, please may I invite musicians to attend our forthcoming recruitment weekend. The past year has been very successful for National Band and we look forward to building upon this over the next 12 months.
As always, we are looking to recruit drum, mallet, bugle, brass and woodwind players who are of a good standard and are proficient at drill.
Please may I draw your attention to the fact that, with the aim of reinstating a bugle section to National Band, we now run a bugle school. The bugle school runs alongside the National Band, on the band weekends, and is open to beginners and novices who may wish to progress to this section of the National Band.
Next year’s annual concert will be at St Mary’s Church, Hinckley. We will also be performing again at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst and holding a 5-day tour at the end of next Summer. Dates for the next band season can be found below.
We would love to welcome you to National Band and/or the bugle school. Therefore, I encourage you to attend our recruitment weekend with a view to becoming part of the National Band family.
If you have any questions or require further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
