|Greenwich Concert Band is regarded as one of South London’s foremost amateur concert bands attracting experienced and talented musicians from the surrounding areas. Many of our members are, or have been, professional musicians and tutors with a number coming from the senior military bands. We also benefit from being supported by a wealth of young talent graduating from the Greenwich Youth Band - part of The Greenwich Academy of Music and Drama. However, we are always looking for new members. For current vacancies, rehearsal information and contact details please see Contact Us /Joining the Band.
The Band performs a wide range of music allowing it to tailor performances to meet every concert’s needs. Our repertoire covers music from ‘stage and screen’ to light classics and traditional pieces and, with a number of ‘big-band’ musicians on board, the band excels in performing ‘40s swing’ and popular standards.
We perform concerts at a variety of venues throughout the South East which include Concert Halls, Yacht/Golf Clubs, ‘Marquee’ Events, Bandstands and Summer Festivals ~ as well as carrying out fundraising activities for charities and other organisations.
The Greenwich Concert Band maintains close links with The Greenwich Academy of Music and Drama and every year combines with ensembles and performers from the Academy, including the Greenwich Community Choir, to stage variety concerts. For details of all our forthcoming concerts and associated booking information please see Concert Diary.
