Hello, we're the Bournemouth and District Concert Band

We’re a friendly, dynamic and sociable concert band which performs across Dorset including Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch, Wimborne and Ferndown. We’re one of the largest concert bands in Dorset with around 65 musicians of all ages, playing instruments of all shapes and sizes. We play a variety of music to a high standard and offer a supportive environment for musicians; and we contribute to our local community where we can.

The programme the band performed was spectacular and very well thought out for our audience. There was something for everyone and the balance of classical, pop and cheese was perfect. The band were totally professional and it was clear that their shared love of performing simply gripped the audience.”
