Are you looking for information on the Leeming Training Band? Please find more details here.
From October 2019, the Leeming Area Community Bands (LACB) will comprise three levels of concert bands: the Leeming Concert Band, a new Leeming Intermediate Band and a new Leeming Training Band, as well as the Leeming Big Band, and various ensembles. You can read more here.
Our Concert Bands consists of the full range of wind and percussion instruments and plays music from a variety of genres (classical, film/theatre, popular, marches and hymns/carols). Our Big Band is a smaller group of brass, saxophone and percussion instruments which plays jazz and swing music.
We rehearse on Thursday nights at the Leeming High School Performing Arts Centre adjacent to the Striker Indoor Sports And Fitness Centre just off Farrington Rd in Leeming (Contact Us for more details). Concert Band rehearsals start at 8pm finishing at 10pm with a short break at 9pm. Big Band rehearsals are every second week and go from 7pm to 8pm (before Concert Band).
From October 2019, the Intermediate Band and the Training Band rehearse at the same venue on Saturday mornings: the Training Band starting at 9am, and the Intermediate Band taking over from 10 to 11:30 am.
All our bands take a well earned break during the school holidays.
Any prospective new members are welcome to turn up to have a blow (or hit) without any obligation! But please Contact Us so we know to expect you.
