It’s nearly concert time! Here are the details of our next concerts:

Our diary page has been updated with some new concert dates, so don’t forget to take a look!

To celebrate almost half a term with our wonderful, new MD, Tom Hodge, here is everything you ever wanted to know about him…and more!

A short bio of my career to date…
I have worked as a musician, teacher and conductor, as well as being involved with many wind bands, big bands, function bands, orchestras and more. I have been privileged to work with world renowned musicians. Over more recent years, my work as a composer and arranger has taken priority and has included commissions for a number of organisations.

Why…

Introducing our new Musical Director (MD), Tom Hodge! Find out more about our shiny, new MD in the “About the Band” section. More exciting new music will be coming to a concert near you soon!

Tickets for our Christmas Concert are now available! Mulled wine and mince pies, anyone?! 🎄🍷🎟

This Sunday a small group of our band members will be providing music to accompany the “Arundel Remembers” Remembrance Service, at Jubilee Gardens in Arundel. Everyone is welcome to attend this centenary year service in memory of all those who died at war. Please see the attached poster for more details.

Our diary has been updated with a number of additional concerts and therefore a great many opportunities to come and see the band! Our concert in Midhurst is TOMORROW, on Saturday 13th October, so we are looking forward to seeing our friends in Midhurst! We can promise you a varied musical programme with some fantastic solos from our family of band members. Please see our diary for further details.

Just a few short weeks until you can enjoy some “Big Band Sounds” at our first concert! Tickets are available from the Parish Office or via band members.

Our Summer break will shortly be drawing to a close. However, the band will be back in the rehearsal room on the 5th of September and we will be working on lots of new music for our Autumn concerts. We will also (in due course!) be working on our festive offering for some truly special Christmas concerts. Please see our diary page for further details and, in the meantime, our gallery has been updated with photos from our birthday concert for you to enjoy.

Our next concert is fast approaching and it’s a particularly special one, because, together with Arundel C of E School, it is in aid of the Chestnut Tree House Children’s Charity. Please help us all to support this very worthy, local cause by buying a ticket and joining us at the concert. Tickets are £10 each, under 16’s are FREE and tickets are available from the Arundel Museum and The Book Ferret, High Street, Arundel.
