The A10 Concert Band is the adult concert band of East Herts Music Centres. The band is an extension of the very successful A10 Orchestra offering adults who play wind and brass at grade 3 and above the chance to work together 3 or 4 times each term and explore some repertoire.
There are no formal entry requirements: rather the emphasis is on making music together. New members are welcome to come to play, or initially to just watch a session.
We have a repertoire of originals and arrangements, classics to ‘moderns’ music from shows, film-scores etc.

If you are interested in joining the group please let me know. We will need a group of about 20 to make it viable musically – I can arrange pieces for more or less any combination of winds, strings and brass so long as there wide range of instruments. To-date we have 3 flutes, 1 oboe, 1 percussion and 1 string bass – clearly not enough but it’s a start.
