Part of the musical landscape of the East Midlands since 1991, Nottingham Concert Band is an independent community wind-band based in West Bridgford, South Nottingham. The band draws on a diversity of musical styles, from classical transcriptions to contemporary compositions and from film and show compilations to big band favourites; and an extensive repertoire ensures a different programme for each performance.
Since 1993, the band has been led by Conductor & Music Director Robert Parker, a graduate and Fellow of Trinity College London, where he studied horn and piano. Robert performs professionally in a wide diversity of contexts and also teaches brass privately. He is also the county representative for the Trinity Guildhall examinations board. Robert is assisted by Associate Conductor Ashley Parnell, who occasionally leads rehearsals and concerts in Robert’s absence.
The band will appear on the main stage on Saturday 17th June in the Old Market Square and are sure to wow the audience; so why not come along and listen - or even shed your inhibitions and dance in front of the stage.
