About our Junior Band
Our Junior Band is not just the stepping stone between our Training band and Youth Band, it is very much a band in its own right with a full calendar of contest and jobs to prepare for. There are now approximately 30 players in the band currently with an age range from 9 to 14 years old.
Rehearsals often start with sectional sessions to help the players really get to grips with the technical challenges of the music they are practising. The band has played at many school and community events such as on South Park bandstand in Macclesfield as well performing at our regular Christmas and Summer concerts with the whole organisation.
The Junior Band has a fantastic record of achievement in contests and competitions winning at the Newcastle-under-Lyme music festival for the last 6 consecutive years. They have also competed at Bolsover contest and will be participating in the National Youth Brass Band Championships at the Royal Northern College of Music in 2012.
