Unfortunately due to the current situation, the physical rehearsals
our Intermediate Wind Band at Ilkley
have stopped until further notice but free sessions are being delivered online
Normally physical rehearsals are held 9am-10am each Saturday at Ilkley Grammar School.
This band welcomes brass and woodwind players Grades 2 – 4.
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.
Dates Intermediate Wind band will not meet for 2019-2020.
