We are a fully registered Charity (No. 1165352) and aim to promote, improve, develop and maintain public education and appreciation of wind band music in Bristol. To meet this aim we provide financial and administrative support to member bands; run a musical instrument loan scheme for members and ensure our member bands and their music is accessible to the wider community.
NEW LEARNER CLASS started on Monday 4th September 2017 at Bailey’s Court Primary School, Bradley Stoke, for those wishing to play a woodwind or brass instrument.
To join the class please contact Keith Hunt, Chairman of the Association, on 0117 9049125 or by e-mail email@example.com.
Don’t worry if you do not have your own instrument as the charity can loan you one at no extra cost.
We have four bands in our Association, covering various levels of ability.
'Winterbourne Winds,' was set up with help from the charity in September 2014 and is now in it's third year. 'Westerly Winds Staple Hill' are in their fourth year of playing together and 'Apollo Wind Band' are now in their fifth. Players in the 'Phoenix Wind Band' are all experienced musicians who have been playing for many years and are considered our advanced level band. ( grade 6 and above)
