Performances

One of Abington Wind Band’s aims is to help raise money for charitable causes by providing musical entertainment or background music at various functions.

A typical programme would be that we play for about 45 minutes, have a short interval (to catch our breath and have some refreshment.) We would then play for a final session of about 30 minutes. This can be varied, within reason.

This is what we would need:

  • a suitable venue (a hall or outside space)
  • 30 to 35 chairs without arm rests.
  • an adjacent power socket for our electric bass
  • nearby parking, with a few very close for bulky and heavy instruments
  • shelter from the rain or direct sun for outdoor venues

We do not charge formal fees, but a contribution to band funds is appreciated, to enable us to purchase new sheet music.

Would you like us to entertain your organisation?

Then – email our secretary at awbsecretary@yahoo.com                                                          or call her on 07772 048427.

We’d love to hear from you.

It would be helpful to have at least a month’s notice – but the longer the better. Then we’ll have more time to arrange and rehearse a suitable programme.
