Southwark Concert Band and South London Symphonic Winds (‘SCB’) are your community wind band!
Our principal aim is to create an environment in which a diverse set of people of all ages and backgrounds have fun making music together. We play a wide repertoire of music ranging from classical arrangements through to modern pieces for wind band.
SCB is part of the umbrella charity South London Community Music. Encouraging and developing positive involvement in the local community is a key aim for the band.
There is no entry audition or any other restriction to joining – players find their own level, with solo opportunities for those who want them. Everyone is also encouraged to contribute to the organisation of the group, which attracts people from all walks of life and from all ages.
Membership is by subscription, and, under the professional musical direction of Bob Bridges, we strive for the highest standards. Most importantly, the SCB aims to create an environment in which people have fun making music and socialising and sharing this with audiences locally and further afield.
Please do get in touch if you would like to know more. We hope to see you soon!
