Hawth Concert - October 2007
What is a Concert Band?
A concert band is a wind band made up of flutes, piccolos, oboes, clarinets (including bass), saxophones (alto, tenor and baritone), bassoons, French horns, trumpets and cornets, trombones (tenor and bass), euphoniums, basses, drums and percussion. CMCB also has a keyboard player and uses a wide range of percussion, including timpani and tubular bells.
We welcome all wind and percussion players who are over 16 years of age, and who have attained a proficiency equivalent to Grade 5. Membership is at the discretion of the committee and new players will be confirmed following attendance at a number of rehearsals - there is not audition. The membership is largely drawn from Crawley but the catchment area extends to a radius for some 20 miles and includes Horsham, East Grinstead and Surrey towns. There are a number of ‘distant members’ who are mostly past members, who now live further afield, but who take part in concerts, socials and band tours.
