NORTHUMBERLAND & BORDERS CONCERT BAND: nbcb.co.uk/ Northumberland and Borders Concert Band was formed in 2022 by Nick Elwood and developed from the Kaizen Occasional Concert Band, formed in 2019. One week after our inaugural concert in March 2020, Covid 19 terminated our activities. We are an ‘occasional' concert band which means we do not rehearse regularly but come together for specific concerts. Despite the pressures of limited rehearsal times and challenging music, playing under Nick's guidance is both rewarding and enjoyable. While our programmes are diverse, we are particularly interested in exploring modern concert band music as well as staging some of the classic repertoires. We aim to promote music and to facilitate opportunities for musicians and audiences to come together. If you play a wind instrument and are of a good standard, grades 7- 8, (or thereabouts) why not add your fire to ours and enhance both our membership and our collective and individual potential.
