Salopian Brass is a well-established, friendly band based in Shrewsbury.

Come and join us!

 

We have a busy and varied program including outdoor summer events in park bandstands and garden fetes as well as charity events, Church Services, Remembrance Day Parades and Carol Concerts.  We also stage formal concerts, sometimes with other ensembles and choirs.

Our rehearsals are held on Thursday evenings between 7.30pm and 9.00pm at Bayston Hill Methodist Church, Lansdowne Road, Bayston Hill, Shrewsbury, SY3 0HZ, where we promise a warm welcome for players of all ages and standards. We have some excellent players in the band and some not quite so excellent but equally enthusiastic.  We help and support each other, all are valued and have fun.

 

DUE TO THE CURRENT CORONA SITUATION, ALL BAND REHEARSALS ARE CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

 

The band had a busy 2019 and is looking forward to another busy one this year.  Along the way we had a few changes.  It has been an enjoyable and saddening 2019, with the loss of a band player to ill health. Gary our Soprano Cornet player was not only a talented musician but a loved family member and friend of the band members and will be sorely missed.

We have also had to say ‘bye for now’ to our music director Chris due to ill health. Hopefully he will keep in touch and pay us a visit when he can.

However, we have now have a replacement MD in the way of Bob Young who has took over the reins  He is keen to keep us moving along and progressing in our abilities and repertoire.  Hopefully he will be able to keep us in check!
