Beenham Wind Orchestra’s first concert of 2022 will be a special occasion – it will be Robert Roscoe’s last concert as our conductor.

Band on the Rec

A perfect evening for ‘Band on the Rec’ at Beenham. What a super atmosphere and how wonderful to see so many people enjoying themselves. It has been such a long time since we last performed in public but we returned in style! A massive thank you to everyone who worked so hard to enable us to play and to ensure this was a Covid safe event.

Face to face rehearsals

 Brilliant news.

 

Face to face rehearsals to return! 

Our first face to face rehearsal will be on Friday 21st May at Beenham school.  Detailed information will be arriving in your inboxes soon.  Please note that the zoom rehearsal on 7th May and the social on 14th May have been cancelled, so there is plenty of time to build up stamina and prepare for an evening of LIVE music led by Victoria Benjamin 😊
