Returning to In-person Rehearsals

Hi everyone

Some potentially exciting news on the horizon…

Given the recent relaxation in COVID restrictions we are allowed to start in-person rehearsals again!

The band committee has discussed a strategy for “Safe Return to Rehearsals” and are putting things in place to make this possible working within the church’s rules and according to National and County restrictions.

Further information will be available soon to members of the band.

Currently our first planned indoor rehearsal will be on Tuesday 22nd June (TBC); 7.30pm, usual venue.

Are you likely to attend this rehearsal?

In order to understand whether we will have sufficient people to make the rehearsal worthwhile, we are asking all members to email chairman Fiona or reply on the website contact page.

Potentially we already have requests for two concerts this year in  August and September.

Are you available in August for a concert?

Please indicate your availability for these with your reply above.

Stay safe

⭐️Notice of new start time for evening remote rehearsals ⭐️

We’re conscious that now schools have gone back some of our members are not able to play their instruments at home late in the evening.

Therefore, From Tuesday 15th September rehearsals will start at 7pm, instead of 7.30pm. ⏰

🎼 Keep practicing 🎼

⭐️ Virtual Play-Along ⭐️

⭐️ Exciting News!! ⭐️

The Guardian Concert Band has recently been trialing virtual play along sessions for band members on Zoom, the sessions have been a resounding success, and are now running every Tuesday night at 7.30pm.

We understand that not every concert band has the ability to run sessions virtually, so we’d now like to offer none band members from the wider musical community the opportunity to join us remotely.

If you are a musician and would like to join our sessions on Tuesday nights please message us via our contact page or drop us an email on
pro@guardianconcertband.uk and we will let you know how the sessions work in a bit more detail and get you set up to join in.
