The Band was formed in 1988 as East Glasgow Concert Band as an outlet for former pupils of St Andrew’s Academy and Lochend Secondary Schools, Glasgow to continue playing music together. Over the years the Band has been augmented by musicians from Glasgow and beyond. In 2019 The East Glasgow Concert Band formally changed their name to the Glasgow Community Concert Band. A name that reflects our community spirit and inclusivity of players from across Glasgow and surrounding areas.
In keeping with our ethos to be community inclusive we do not audition players and will be keen to embrace within our Band anyone of any age or background who plays a concert band instrument (including bass/bass guitar and percussion) to a reasonable musical standard. New players always welcome. Don’t be shy!
We rehearse weekly for most of the year towards our late Spring and late Autumn concerts and for any other events in which we participate .
Form time to time we arrange social activities which are great fun.
We have a modest subscription of £10 per month.
We are an enthusiastic group of people of all ages who enjoy playing music together to the best of our abilities. We would be really pleased if you wanted to join our Band or support it in any way! You’ll see how to get in touch in our Contact section or click here.
