Aberdeen Concert Band (Scottish Charity No SC036864) is a wind band in Aberdeen that provides busking and concerts within the city and shire. We warmly welcome newcomers and also offer subsidised tuition for £10 a lesson. This is with our woodwind instructor, Juliette Dinning with the aim to join the band once they are confident.
Lessons are free for band members.
The band is directed by our Musical Director, Colin Hunter and we meet every Wednesday at 7:15 PM at Cults Parish Church. Fees are £100 per year but are reduced for students in full-time education and those on pensions or those in receipt of benefits.
Some of our most notable achievements were being awarded the Gold Plus award in the Scottish Concert Band Festival 2019 Heats and being invited to the Evening Express Carol Concert in 2017.
We are recruiting members in all sections but particularly in the Tuba, Horn and Trumpet and Percussion sections. No audition is necessary but grade 4 would be a preferred requirement.
