Conductor Urgently Required

After our succesful run at the Belgrade Theatre playing Grimley Band in Brassed Off, our conductor Josh Hughes decided to return to his native area of Manchester.

The band would like to thank Josh for all his hard work in bringing the band on and wish him well in all his future conducting roles.

We are therefore urgently seeking a new conductor who is willing to build on the progress the band has made over the last two years. If you are interested then please email Liz Cowley at coventryfestivalband@gmail.com or phone her on 024 7671 3763.

  • Eb/Bb Basses

Coventry Festival Band are a community, non-contesting band with a broad range of ability within its playing membership. We meet on Tuesday and Friday evenings at Chelyesmore Community Centre, Arundel Road, Coventry, and have a busy but not hectic and varied summer/winter schedule of engagements. To arrange to meet the band, or for more information, please call our secretary Liz Cowley on 024 7671 3763 or email us at coventryfestivalband@gmail.com

Please click on Membership for more details.

Other players welcome!
If you do not wish to spend hours and hours just playing the same piece (or indeed the same bar!), and if you cannot give the commitment demanded for the 5 or 6 rehearsals per week in the run up to a contest, then Coventry Festival Band could be the band for you!

For more information please contact Liz Cowley, Band Secretary on
024 7671 3763.

Our rehearsals are Tuesday and Friday from 7.30 to 9.30pm at Cheylesmore Community Centre, Arundel Road, Coventry CV3 5JX.
