Dukeries Community Band
The Dukeries Community band is made up from musicians of all ages who come, not only from the local community, but from further afield. The band offers an opportunity for wind, brass and percussion players of all abilities to rehearse together on a regular basis in a relaxed atmosphere.
The Community Band play three major concerts each year as well as supporting the Academy Music Department when required.
If you played an instrument in the past and are looking for a chance to ease your way back into playing, then this band offers you the ideal opportunity. Similarly, should you play a wind or brass instrument as a hobby or as part of your school studies, the band can introduce you to a new library of music which covers both popular and classical pieces.
Rehearsals take place each Tuesday evening during term time beginning at 7pm and, although each rehearsal lasts for two hours, younger musicians may attend for the first hour and build up from there over time.

The band also has a Facebook page @DukeriesCommunityBand
