Providing an opportunity to make and listen to great music

Who we are

We are a community based concert band with members from all walks of life. We all share a passion for making music and love the opportunity to share it with other people through regular performances. We play a variety of music including classical, show tunes, folk, pop, jazz standards, etc.

We are always looking for new members. If you can play any brass or woodwind instrument and can read music we would love to hear from you. The band also owns a few instruments which can be lent to members if required.

  • If you would like further information or to talk with a real person before coming along phone or email Frances at or phone 0274 964 806.
  • Be our guest. Bring your instrument and join in on a few Tuesday rehearsals to see if the band suits you.

what is a concert band?

The modern Concert Band is a development of the American Military Band and is essentially an orchestra without the strings (with one exception - the Double-Bass). The instruments include Flutes, Clarinets, Oboes, Bassoons, Trumpets, Trombones, Baritones, Horns, Tubas, Double Bass, Saxophones and Percussion.


The NSCB has been playing for over 30 years, and some of its founding members are still going strong today!
