Bristol Concert Wind Band are a friendly community band which have been performing in Bristol for over 30 years. Now under the direction of Rainer Dolz we perform regularly at venues throughout Bristol and beyond. We perform both formal and informal concerts in venues as diverse as the Colston Hall and park gigs in the summer.

BCWB are not just one band, but many. We cater for advanced players in the Concert Band and also for complete beginners and improving players in our other bands.

BCWB Seeking a New Musical Director

Due to personal circumstances our highly respected and successful Musical Director has had to resign from Bristol Concert Wind Band. We are therefore looking for a new Musical Director with extensive experience of conducting wind bands and knowledge of wind band repertoire to lead the band to even greater heights.

Bristol Concert Wind Band rehearses on a Wednesday night in Brislington, Bristol and is the senior band of the BCWB organisation. The band performs a wide variety of music at a very high level. Recent repertoire includes Slavonic Dances – Dvorak, Bridges over the River Cam – Derek Bourgeois, Suite of Old American Dances - RR Bennett, October – Eric Whitacre and Thames Journey-Nigel Hess

You can come and listen to the band on November 14th at our formal Autumn Concert at Trinity Henleaze United Reform Church to see what we can do.

A Successful Autumn Concert for BCWB

Bristol Concert Wind Band had a great turnout for their Autumn Concert at Trinity-Henleaze United Reformed Church on the 14th November 2015, with a lot of new faces coming to see what the band had been up to since the Summer.

A mixed programme, from My Fair Lady and Indiana Jones, to Gaelforce and English Dances, was performed. Our principal flute Sally Sands also played a brilliant rendition of Tambourin, a piece played by many of world's top flautists. Thanks to everyone who came and hope to see you at one of our future concerts soon!

BCWB Fundraising for Brain Tumour Support this Christmas

Bristol Concert Wind Band have chosen their charity for this year's Christmas Fundraiser - Brain Tumour Support!
Based in Thornbury, Brain Tumour Support (registerd charity 1102750) are dedicated to providing specialist, tailored support services for those affected by any type of brain tumour, including patients, families, carers and loved ones. They provide support across the South West and Midlands.

Every year, all bands in the BCWB family come together for a Christmas charity fundraiser, raising money for a different charity each year. Last year we raised over £1,100 for Avon Riding Centre for the Disabled. This year's big event will be held at Hanham Community Centre on Saturday 5th December at 7:30pm.
