Abbey Brass in Concert
Join us on Saturday 6th October for a Concert and Awards evening at Christchurch, Northcourt Road, Abingdon. The concert will include the Main Band and the Training Band and with the Main Band heading to Oxford for a contest where they will be playing some of the pieces from the concert it promises to be a great evening of Brass.
Entry is just £5 on the door, under 16’s are free.
We are a traditional British brass band from Abingdon-on-Thames, in the Vale of White Horse, South Oxfordshire.
As a registered charity, our aim is to provide education and training for young people and adults in the playing of brass instruments, to promote the appreciation and understanding of brass band music and stimulate interest in the art of brass band playing.
Within the Abbey Brass organisation, there are two full brass bands (Main Band and Training Band) and a learners group. We are currently on the lookout for people who want to learn how to read music and to play a brass instrument.
For only £75 a year, we can supply an instrument and weekly group tuition.
We are also interested to hear from those who can already play an instrument and are looking for a band to join. We rehearse in our own band room near Abingdon town centre – for more details, see our About Us page.
