Aylesbury Concert Band
Made up of enthusiastic amateur players from Aylesbury and the surrounding areas, Aylesbury Concert Band is a wind band serving the community of Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire, England.
The band performs several concerts throughout the year as well as at civic occasions, such as the Mayor’s Carol Service each Christmas. As well as providing music for fêtes in the summer, Aylesbury Band is the centrepiece of each year’s “ParkLife” festival in August, performing a “Proms” concert to an audience which can number over a thousand if the weather is good.
The Band has entered the National Concert Band Festival a number of times and has won several awards, including a Gold award in November 2012 followed by Silver in the National Final in Birmingham in April 2013. The aim is constantly to improve, at the same time making membership of the band enjoyable for players of all levels of experience.
In addition to playing in the local area, the band has also travelled to Germany, Belgium, and the USA, taking their brand of entertainment to a wider audience.
