    Solent Concert Band is based on the south coast of England in Portsmouth, Hampshire. The band (originally known as Southsea Junior Band) was founded in 1969 by Wesley Garner, Noel Horner and Ron Moore, with the aim of recruiting young musicians, eager to learn the 'Art' of brass banding. Over the years the band grew in size and standard, and by 1974, had become fully established under the new name of Solent Youth Concert Band.

    As the band grew in numbers, it became necessary to form a second band, which became the Solent Concert Band. Both bands continue to thrive, competing and entertaining throughout the year.

    Solent Concert Band is a registered 2nd section band, regularly competing in the West of England Regional Brass Band Championships.
    The philosophy of the band is, and always has been, to offer free instrumental tuition and instrument loan to musicians of all ages and abilities.

    We are currently looking to recruit new members, particularly in the cornet, baritone and trombone sections. We also have a youth training band and would welcome new and younger players would would like to take up brass banding.

    If you would like any more information, please visit our website or contact our secretary, Linda Broad on (023)92 781364.
