One of Abington Wind Band's aims is to help raise money for charitable causes by providing musical entertainment and/or background music at various functions.
We would welcome enquiries from any organisation that might find this idea helpful.
The Band does not lay down conditions but it should be noted that there would be between 35 and 40 players coming from all parts of the County and so we would expect to perform for at least one hour to make it worthwhile. The most common pattern is that the first part is about 45 minutes, a short interval (to catch our breath and have some refreshment) and a final session of about 30 minutes. But this can be varied as required.
We do not charge formal fees, but a contribution to Band funds is always welcome, mainly to fund the purchase of new music which for this number of musicians can be quite expensive.
If you or your organisation would be interested in having us entertain you, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our Secretary. (see the 'Contacts' page). It would be helpful to have at least a month's notice - but the longer the better - so that a suitable programme can be arranged and rehearsed.
