The Buckrose Concert Band is a non-profit community wind band. We are a full-sized concert band based in Wetwang, East Yorkshire.
The band comprises of woodwind (clarinet, saxophone, etc.), brass (trumpet, trombone, etc.) and percussion (drums, glockenspiel etc.) players. We are self-supporting and all of its players give their time and services for free. We have a membership of over fifty musicians.
The Objectives of the band are:
- To develop and enrich the musical education and skills of the members and the community;
- To perform works of high musical quality and present a repertoire with wide appeal;
- To support and satisfy a variety of community sponsored events, and develop a performance band that is an asset to the local community.
The repertoire of the band is far reaching and includes a wide variety of light classics, stage and film scores and medleys of popular tunes. Many pieces are chosen to highlight the different sections of the band. We present a number of goodwill performances each year. A recording of a selection of our pieces is available on our limited edition CD ‘Wind On The Wolds’.
