NANTWICH CONCERT BAND

The Concert Wind Band was founded in 1983 (then called Nantwich & District Band) for woodwind and brass players of all ages.  We offer a varied repertoire of music, from the traditional wind band pieces through to more modern pieces and music from stage and screen.  Under the baton of our conductor and Musical Director Nick Birch, the band performs at local fêtes, festivals and carnivals throughout the summer.  You can hear us on many busy Saturdays in Nantwich Town Squareas well as at the annual Nantwich Show, the beautiful riverside Chester Bandstand and the Nantwich Food Festival.  We are particularly busy each Christmas, playing carols in the Square and at other venues around the area.  Every June, we hold a formal 'Midsummer Concert' in the Nantwich Civic Hall and a Charity Concert in the beautiful St Mary's Church Nantwich in October.

The Community Training Band is a dedicated training band, open to beginners of all ages, including those wishing to gain confidence in playing as a group.
The Community Band helps players to gain as much musical experience as possible and strives to include a special section for them to perform in the concert programmes.  Progression to the main Concert Band is encouraged but not compulsory and players from the main band who find they are struggling can always opt for a 'refresher' in the training band.  A few of our Concert Band members come to the Community Band sessions for the opportunity to gain more experience on their second instruments.
