Becoming a Member of Ashby Concert Band


ACB is a true community band and welcomes players of all ages. The entry level is ABRSM Grade 5 or equivalent. Admission to the Band is subject to a satisfactory audition. The audition consists of playing a Grade 5 study of your choice; musicality, intonation and timing are the main attributes being assessed.


Once you have completed a satisfactory audition (normally within a month of first attending band rehearsals) you will be invited to become a full member of the Band. There is an initial, one-off, Joining Fee, and termly Subscription Fees.


ACB is currently seeking to recruit Trumpet, French Horn and Trombone players to strengthen these key sections of the Band. Although we are happy to welcome new players who meet our minimum entry standard of Grade 5 we are particularly keen to attract players with a minimum of Grade 8 on these instruments. Previous experience of playing in a concert band or orchestral environment is very important.


ACB is also seeking to recruit a percussion/kit player. Although it is desirable to have achieved a minimum of Grade 5 in percussion prior experience of playing in a concert band or orchestral environment would be valued.


Please apply to the Director of Music by completing the Enquiry Form below giving details of qualifications and experience.
