Formed in 1908, Sandhurst Silver Band is made up of two individual ensembles. Sandhurst Community Brass, a non-contesting band made up of players ranging in ability, and Sandhurst Silver Band who compete nationally at the top level of brass banding. The bands have their own bandroom in the centre of Sandhurst and as a development area, are looking to create a youth band in the near future.
Both bands regularly host concerts in the Sandhurst area, as well as appearing further afield. So we look forward to welcoming you to hear the ‘Sounds of Sandhurst’.
