City of Plymouth Concert Band
The City of Plymouth Concert Band was formed over 35 years ago to provide local musicians with a
focus for ensemble playing. The band membership is of wide age range and musical background.
Rehearsals take place on Monday evenings between 7.30 and 9.30 p.m at
Mount Gould Methodist Church, Faringdon Road, (off Ladysmith Road), Plymouth PL4 7PY.
An extensive library of music from the wind band repertoire is available. The band rehearses more
challenging works as well as less difficult arrangements to enhance the enjoyment and development
of all members. Concerts are performed throughout the year at a variety of venues. There is no
requirement for audition or formal musical qualification though as a guide a standard of grade 5
or above would be the norm. The current membership fee (2017/18) is £40 per
Steve Williams is now Director of Music and Conductor, and Simon Cartwright is our Deputy Conductor.
Frank Huxham is still with us as Music Advisor and playing the french horn.
