The Dukeries Community Band

by | 10 August 2021 | Hobbies, Music, Sherwood

Rehearsals are now underway and players have begun preparing for the Dukeries Community Band’s first major event of the year, which will be the Sherwood Forest Rotary Proms in November.
There are now 26 registered players and they hope to recruit more as the weeks progress. The first rehearsal in September will be on Tuesday 7th. If you would like to join them, please let them know at dukeriescommband@btinternet.com.
Woodwind, brass and percussion players are required. In particular, they hope to find a tuba player and a drum kit player.
At present, they are also searching for a conductor for this keen group of musicians. As they do not have all instrumental parts covered at rehearsals, they require someone to train the players and take them through the pieces in preparation for each concert, when we are usually joined by some associate members to make up the numbers. Three major concerts are arranged during the year, plus seasonal events.
