‘A Championship Band based in the heart of the Royal Forest of Dean ... Like many community bands Lydbrook has been fortunate to have some great fund raisers on their committee. The hard working non-players have raised many thousands of pounds for band funds over the years. This has enabled the band to build its own bandroom and buy new uniforms and instruments for the senior and training band ... One of Lydbrook Band’s many success stories over the years has been the formation of its Training Band ... No-one is ever turned away and no-one is ever too old to learn. All players are welcome and we will supply an instrument free of charge if you haven’t already got one.’

Forthcoming Concerts and Recitals

Formed 2000: ‘Our repertoire covers a wide range of music, from baroque to pop. All concert performances are for charity ... We give two or three concerts a year. Our autumn concert is our more classical event, often performed with support from some excellent soloists and a small orchestra. The spring concert is less formal, and offers opportunities for members who enjoy taking on a solo. In the past, we have sung at a variety of venues, including village halls, community centres and churches, museums, open gardens and street fairs ... Variety is the spice of this choir’s life. We do not hold auditions. The only requirement for membership is the ability to sing in tune’.

Forthcoming Concerts and Recitals

'We are a medium-sized choir, with 40-50 singers of all ages; this size means that we get to know each other, and the coffee break at half-time is a valued part of our rehearsal routine! We normally put on two major concerts a year, along with a carol concert at Christmas and a more informal summer entertainment. We perform with professional soloists and accompanists, and at least once a year with a professional orchestra.'

'We are a non-contesting and non-marching band. Our aim is to provide entertainment for the people in and around the town of Ross. Whilst this means we choose music our audience will know and enjoy we also choose music that is challenging to the players. We hope you get the chance to hear us play at one of our concerts or one of the many events we play at.'
