Welcome to Ashby Concert Band

 

This year Ashby Concert Band is celebrating its 20th Anniversary. The band was formed way back in 1996 and was originally known by the name Staunton Wind Orchestra (SWO). The change of name to Ashby Concert Band came about in 2004 when the band moved from its original home of Breedon-on-the-Hill to Ashby. In 1996, under the directorship of the original Musical Director, Lauren Fasci, the band's membership totalled around 20 players. The current Director of Music, Adrian Ashton, took over the baton at the end of 1998 when the membership was just 25 players. Now the band boasts a membership of over 50 players and is one of the leading concert bands in the East Midlands.

 

 

As 2016 draws to an end all that remains is for the concert band to perform our annual Christmas concert, once again at the early time of 4.30 p.m. on Saturday 17th December.
