If you would like to play in Werneth Concert Band, read on!


We generally accept players of reasonable ability (about Grade 5 or above).

If you play woodwind (flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon or saxophone), brass (cornet, trumpet, French horn, trombone, euphonium or bass), double bass or percussion, then you may have come to the right place!

We always want to hear from potential new members, but we do limit places in order to maintain the balance of the band. We maintain a waiting list of applicants for popular positions.

We have playing vacancies for:
