After 434 days of no music making and abandoned plans to return, Ashford Concert Band joined together for its first indoor rehearsal this evening.

Thanks to the wonders of Zoom, the Band kept fresh during the lockdown by playing along to backing tracks of its extensive repertoire, but there is nothing better than hearing the sound of the full band together in one place. With social distancing in place and a very large hall, the sound was fantastic – despite some cobwebs, it was as if we had not been away for all those months!

We will be able to share very soon news of our outdoor performances for Summer 2021, so be sure to check back here very soon for more news.

We are always on the look out for new players, so if you know your way around a trumpet, French horn, saxophone or flute, and can read music, why not get in touch and enjoy some fun music making?
