We are delighted that Keith Davies has accepted the position of MD with us.
We are now enjoying playing a wide range of popular brass band music, along with new arrangements by Keith, to suit our current line up – this includes items specific for commemorating the Centenary, and the Armistice in November.
Our diary for Christmas is already filling up, including a concert on 15th December at the URC, Thornbury.
Anyone interested in being part of our bright future, please contact us or come along to a Tuesday evening rehearsal.
May 2018 – Thornbury Town Band are very pleased to announce that Richard Pellow has joined the band. Richard has played cornet for many years and has come back to banding after a gap to establish his career. We are delighted to welcome him to the front row.
We were extremely fortunate to have Owen Farr lead our practice on 1st November 2016. The band had been preparing for the GBBA event on 20th November and felt that we would benefit from some world class musical interpretation. Owen led us for an intensive workshop with humour and with passion and despite being unfamiliar with the music, the band responded well to his direction and explanation for how to read and interpret phrases and movements. All at the practice commented how enjoyable it had been, despite working hard and how much had been learned.
We hope that Owen might be able to take us again when we are working towards a specific event in the future.
Owen Farr will be taking Thornbury Town band in a workshop on the contest pieces for the GBBA Own Choice Contest. This will be an excellent event and we hope the band gains a lot of insight and inspiration from it.
The Band gets a new website! We hope the new band website will be a fantastic source of information for band members and the general public. This website will show the current status of the band and aim to promote the band to the public and to the wider brass band community.
Please feel free to take a look around, view our upcoming events and our band history.
Thank you to all those involved with the production of the new website.
The website is designed to work on all devices including a mobile phone version!
