Description

Second Wind is a concert band of enthusiastic amateur players of wind instruments, mostly those that are commonly heard in military bands (typically Flute, Clarinet, Oboe, Bassoon, Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone, French Horn, Euphonium and Tuba) supported by drums and other percussion.

The band was formed in 1998 by a group of like minded players from the area around the town of Sevenoaks in Kent. Although many members now come from further afield, Second Wind has always regarded itself as a Sevenoaks band, and is a longstanding supporter of, and performer at, the town's Summer Festival.

Rehearsals began on Friday evenings in a nearby village hall and have continued on the same day moving to various locations in Sevenoaks over the years.

Most of the original members are still playing with the band which has become a very sociable as well as musical group.
We get together most weeks of the year under the baton of our music director Martin Forward, to rehearse and prepare for concerts and just to enjoy playing music in the great variety of styles available to bands such as ours. Concert venues include public bandstands, like Eastbourne and summer Fetes and Festivals.
