The Intermediate Wind Band is held from 9am-10am each Saturday at Ilkley Grammar School. This band welcomes brass, woodwind and percussion players. They play a broad range of well-known and popular music such as Thunderbirds, the Finale from the New World Symphony and Star Trek. Getting to know the other players is also a key aspect of the band.
Once a month the members of our Intermediate Wind Band are encouraged to join up with Masharti, one of our string bands of similar ability, to create our unique Bradford Youth Training Orchestra. These two groups enjoy working together and coming to play in these groups adds a fantastic social interaction to their musical journey whilst they develop an appreciation of the different skills required to learn a very different instrument.
As most of our Wind Band members are registered to attend the Bradford Youth Training Orchestra, the Intermediate Wind Band will not meet on those dates. Please click HERE to view these dates for 2019-2020.
The Bradford Youth Training Orchestra meet at Titus Salt School, Higher Coach Road, Baildon, Shipley BD17 5RH once a month.
