Our rehearsals back after Covid have started well with many new players. When all our existing players have returned we will be getting back to full strength.

We have Trombone, French Horn and Tenor Sax vacancies, but would love to see new players of all instruments, so if you would like to join us please get in touch – see the contacts page.

We are planning to enter the National Concert Band Festival this year and will hopefully be attending the heat at Nottingham on November 28th.

We will be playing at the Kelham Island Christmas market on the weekend of December 4th/5th. More details when the date is confirmed.

In November 2014 Silver Spectrum took part in the National Concert Band Festival North Region and was awarded a Platinum Award. Consequently, the band were invited to participate in the 30th Anniversary finals of the National Concert Band Festival in April 2015, which took place in The Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. The band were able to perform to three guest judges from around the world, who offered constructive critique on their performance. The players were also able to attend a concert by the Royal Air Force Central Band and The Royal Air Force Squadronaires Big Band during the course of the weekend.
