Woodley Concert Band Concert

Spring is on the horizon and with it comes our first concert in this, Woodley Concert Band's 50th anniversary year! We're delighted to invite you to join us for an evening of music and entertainment from Woodley Concert Band.

Normally our concerts feature music that follows a theme – for example, our last concert was full of music from different time periods, and we often perform concerts of British music or movie themes and musicals. This time we're giving our musical director a completely blank canvas to create a concert featuring the very best of different music styles and genres; this feels like a good way to begin our golden anniversary celebrations.

To give you an idea of what to expect, you'll hear Bernstein's epic Overture to Candide, a medley of James Bond music, highlights from Disney and some uplifting original wind band music from Philip Sparke. Whatever your taste, there will be plenty to enjoy!

Musical Director: Claire Lawrence.

Tickets: £14, concessions (over 65s) £12, £5 for under 16s, available from TicketSource or by calling 0870 321 2186 or contact us by email.

There are also FREE TICKETS through the WCB First Timers Scheme for those who have never been to a WCB concert before. You can find out more information on the band's website at www.woodleyconcertband.org.uk.
