The competing ‘Deepcar Brass Band was formed in 1988 as a training band for local youngsters ... Whilst we are no longer a training band, it remains the band policy to encourage and train new players through an active training programme and our players now encompass a wide range in age and experience ... Deepcar Training Band is open to players of all age and ability; from someone picking up an instrument for the very first time in their life, or a player who is returning to playing a brass instrument following a break, or an experienced player who just wants to “give something back” and get involved to pass on their knowledge and help new players develop and progress.’

 

'Formed in 1917, during the First World War, Grimethorpe Colliery Band is a British institution.

Grimethorpe's diverse noted concert performances include those at the FIFA World Cup, BAFTA Awards, BBC Proms, Eurovision and London 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony ... In addition to continuing to delight audiences across the globe, Grimethorpe also continues to invest in and support its local community in Grimethorpe, Barnsley and South Yorkshire, particularly through its youth music initiatives and community performances, both locally and on a national scale.'

 

‘Formed in 1861, Old Silkstone Band has maintained the characteristics of a typical village band, performing at local events and venues whilst representing the communities of Silkstone, Silkstone Common and Barnsley both nationally and internationally. Hard work and dedication has moulded the band into a strong musical team that has in recent years competed against the very best brass bands the country has to offer ... The band has a busy calendar, delivering a variety of programmes for a range of events throughout Yorkshire and beyond.’

 

Formed 1986: ‘We have a broad repertoire of songs, and we enjoy singing in a variety of styles. In our concerts we try to cater for all tastes and include something for everyone. We also cater for specific occasions, such as our Christmas concerts. We have sung at fundraisers for charity, at local community events, at competitions and memorial concerts’.

 

Founded 1962: ‘Singing has brought us together. We are from all ages and walks of life. Some are experienced singers and musicians, and some new learners. There are deep voices and high voices, young voices and mature voices, quiet voices and confident voices. Together we make music, and have fun, as a community who love to sing ... We sing all kinds of music from madrigals to musicals, from traditional folksong to contemporary arrangements, from beautiful religious pieces to modern jazz and everything in-between! Typically the choir appears in around twelve concerts or events each year’.
