Barnes Concert Band is an amateur band with a friendly but professional attitude. We play around six concerts a year, mostly in SW London including the prestigious Barnes Music Festival. The band meets weekly on Tuesday evenings from 7:30 – 9:30 pm at St Richard Reynolds School, Clifden Road, Twickenham, TW1 4LT, which is a short walk from Twickenham Station. [We use the separate sports hall building, accessed through the pedestrian gate in Station Road.] Parking is usually easy in the evening.
Band membership is diverse and everyone shares a passion to create great music and have fun. We include all the woodwind and brass instruments plus percussion.
If you play around Grade 8 standard or are committed to reaching this level we’d love to hear from you. There is a trial period for potential new members, but no audition.
If you are interested, come and see us and say hello at one of our forthcoming gigs (on the morning of 26 June near Barnes Pond, 11th July at Regents Park bandstand, and 18 September at Trumpeters House, Richmond) or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Barnes Concert Band is a community band started over 40 years ago. We have around forty members, amateur players from South-West London who enjoy practising and performing a wide range of wind band music from contemporary to classical, films and shows. The Band support the activities of local community organisations and regularly play in the summer on bandstands. We also invite audiences to formal concerts so we can tackle the more challenging pieces in the wind band repertoire.
Anyone wishing to join the Band should understand our Child/Young Person Protection Policy – we are an adult band but very occasionally exceptional young players are with us.
