Join Us!

New players are always welcome.

Stourport-on-Severn Brass Band has been providing live music to local areas and further afield since 1969. We are a friendly community band, whose focus is to entertain our audiences, improve our ability as players, take part and succeed in contests and enjoy our company.

We are a band on the rise, with a number of concert successes over the past few years.  In 2016, the band secured a place for the 2nd time in 3 years to the National Brass Band Championship Finals and more recently, has received the fantastic news that from January 2018, will be promoted to the Second Section of the Championships.  This is exciting news.

Stourport-on-Severn Brass Band is also making headway in Entertainment competitions too.  In October 2017, the band performed at the Bolsover Festival of Brass and was delighted to win the trophy for 3rd place in the Second Section competition and a couple of weeks later, at Wychavon Festival of Brass, achieved 2nd place in the Third Section competition.  The band is delighted with its achievements.

JoinUsUnder the musical direction since 2013 of Oli Wilson, we are looking to continue to improve on our concert performances and contest success and what we can achieve as a team.  Oli is very enthusiastic, encouraging us to play well as a band and improve our individual playing.  We are a band of mixed abilities and all of us are encouraged positively.  We are ambitious and keen to grow.

The band enjoys playing a good variety of exciting and engaging music and has a sensible schedule of concerts, contests and social events, aiming to strike a balance with our busy lives!
