Band Seeks Hidden Talent

Andover Town Band is looking for extra players to strengthen its team. After its most successful year yet since it reformed in 2010, the band won its second promotion in March - and is now in the Second Section - while in January the youth band collected a sideboard full of trophies at the Wessex youth and training band contest. 

The recent charity concert at St Mary's Church with Builth Wells Male Voice Choir, organised by Andover Rotary Club was a sell-out success (see our gallery) and the band are currently preparing for a busy programme of fetes and carnivals before a summer trip to Germany.

However, some of the band's talented young people are leaving Andover this Autumn, off to university or starting their careers. So the band has vacancies for trombone, flugel horn, cornet and percussion players.

Steve Large, Andover Town Band musical director said:

"As a band we're proud of the opportunities we can provide for players, no matter what their ability. Some of our members only picked up an instrument for the first time three years ago and already have won contest trophies. So we're always looking for beginners who are keen to learn a brass instrument. But we would also welcome experienced players, young or old.

"Perhaps you used to play, but are a bit rusty. Maybe you're new to the area and would like to join a friendly group of musicians. Perhaps you would play but need to borrow an instrument. We can certainly help there. You don't need anything except a readiness to join in!I f you'd like to watch before you decide whether to join in, that's fine too!

"We'd be keen to welcome percussionists, cornet players, trombonists and a flugel player to strengthen our team and to replace two or three of our young people who are leaving the area. We rehearse every Thursday evening (Youth from 6.30, Community Band from 7.30) at Mitutoyo in West Portway (just off the Weyhill Road)."

The concert will feature much of the music which thrilled the audiences on the recent tour of Germany. The music will be wide and varied and could feature anything from the Magic Flute by Mozart to Bad Romance from Lady Gaga! It is sure to be an evening to remember, so why not get your tickets organised and enjoy a great musical evening amongst friends.

New Years Honours 2014 ........ Well Done Steve

Huge congratulations to Steve Large, our brilliant musical director.

His service to Brass Banding has been recognised by the award of the British Empire Medal and we are all extremely proud to be associated with him. Well done Steve

----------------------------------------------------------

The band has improved as a result of preparing for the contest and audiences for our Christmas engagements should be able to hear the difference. The sound of a brass band playing carols is as much a part of Christmas as the smell of mince-pies or the sparkle of tinsel. We're looking forward to helping all our friends in and around the town to celebrate this special season."

Andover Town Band is a local charity run by a dedicated team of volunteers.

 

We are a subscription band who rely on the financial support of our sponsors, kind donations from the friends of ATB and the general public. We also raise funds through a variety of concerts and engagements.

 

All financial support we receive enables us to provide a fully functioning brass band for the local area, providing ongoing tuition to people of all ages and abilities who wish to participate in playing of brass band music.

 

Andover Town Band is a brass band organisation which is intended to compliment musical choice in the area by offering aspiring musicians a choice of banding ethos and opportunity.

 

The Band aims to take its music into the community, to share playing and participation with local charities and educational causes.

 

It promotes the tradition of the brass band movement and in particular provides opportunities for each member to learn, develop and reach their full potential via an exceptional education programme open to both children and adults alike.
