We also have four small bands under the main Wind Orchestra which perform both alongside Wind Orchestra and independently:
Feeling Saxy perform mainly up-beat and film music, entertaining audiences in a variety of locations. They are run this year by Abi Pennells and Emily Alger. They currently rehearse on Fridays 5-7pm next to the Westwood Bandstand, and as restrictions ease the whole group can play together. The famous Saxy Socials must also not be forgotten! Join their Facebook group if you are interested in coming along!
Flute Choir also perform a big variety of music, especially different film pieces and arrangements of songs from musicals. They are run this year by Amrita Sandhu, Emily Roberts and James Haigh. They normally rehearse on Wednesday 1-3pm in the Creative Learning Space.
Liquorice Sticks, our clarinet small band, perform a wide variety of music, ranging from up-beat pieces like Caprice, to famous classical excerpts and film music (How to Train Your Dragon). They are run this year by Ruth Pugh, Katharine Wilson-Jarvis and Anna Ruddock and normally rehearse on Wednesday 6-8pm in Woods-Scawen.
This year we are excited to welcome our newest small band - the Double Reed Ensemble! Open to a range of woodwind instruments, the ensemble is run this year by Daria Hall and Cameron Hamond. Rehearsal times and locations are TBD.
