PROVIDING MUSIC THROUGH A COMMUNITY BAND AND A CONTESTING BAND
Gosport Solent Brass provides brass music to the Solent area. It is available for local concerts and civic events and more details about hiring the band can be found here.
The newly formed training band has been recently set up and we are working hard at adding more members. If you know of a child(10 years+ ) or young adult who would like to learn a brass instrument please contact us.
The community band can consist of players of all ages and abilities (Although we do have a few requirements listed below) and less experienced players are encouraged to learn and sit alongside more experienced players.
We aim to allow as many of the players of the community band to take part in as many concerts and engagements Gosport Solent Brass performs.
If you are interested in joining GSB Community Band this is what we look for :-
- · An ability of playing at roughly a grade 4 standard. This is just a guide for the band and no awarded grade is required.
- · The ability to play as part of an ensemble. (We really value balanced and blended playing! )
- · A sense of team work and good attendance.
The contesting band takes part in various competitions over the course of the year. This will include the West of England Regional Championships and the SCABA contests.
