About City of Swansea Concert Band
The City of Swansea Concert Band was founded in 1968 by the late Stuart Price. It was then known as the West Cross & Mumbles Military Band, and performed its first engagement in July 1968 in the grounds of Oystermouth Castle, Mumbles (Mumbles is a village close to Swansea).
By 1970, the band had become the Mumbles Concert Band, and played under that title until March 1984 when, with the permission of the City Council, it changed its name to reflect the area it covers, namely the City of Swansea. Over the last 40 odd years, it has grown in numbers to an average of about 40 players ranging in age from 14 to over 75, and members of the band come from all walks of life. We have good links with Swansea University, and students often come and play with us.
The Musical Directors of the band have been Stuart Price 1968 to 1998, Stephen Price 1998 to January 1999, and John Price from that time to the present.
he band is available for hire at any occasion, and can alter numbers of players and music to suit taste.
We give regular performances in the local community, and have also performed throughout Wales and parts of England. The highlight of the band year is the annual concert which takes place in November or December.
We rehearse twice weekly, on Monday and Wednesday evenings between 7.30pm and 9pm (not on Bank Holidays) in Rhyddings Church Hall, Rhyddings Park Road, Brynmill (Uplands), Swansea.
We offer a warm welcome to new players of wind or percussion instruments. The band demands a certain instrumental skill of its players, but we try to be as inclusive as possible.
We have a wide range of instruments for loan, and an extensive music library
We don't currently have any future gigs listed for City of Swansea Concert Band.
