The Concert Band
Under the direction and guidance of our Musical Director Nick Birch, band rehearsals are fun, sometimes hard and always educational.  Nick is an award winning trombone and euphonium player himself and has worked under the batons of some of the country's best conductors.  He is able to pass on to us many of their techniques, which help us all to play to the best of our ability.  He expects players to practise at home any passages they find difficult, so we can use the rehearsal time to the maximum benefit of the whole band.  He is always approachable before or after rehearsals for anyone needing individual help.

We meet at Brookfield Hall, Shrewbridge Road, Nantwich CW5 7AD
