The Lingfield Silver Band, whilst primarily a village band also play engagements elsewhere in Surrey, Sussex and Kent. Repertoire is varied and includes arrangements of many classical and contemporary pieces. The band have recently become involved in contesting with SCABA, and have done consistently well at the annual ensemble and quartet contest.
As part of internal reorganisations within the band, a number of players have taken the opportunity to switch instruments. As a result, we currently have vacancies on soprano cornet and flugelhorn . We could also benefit from a few extra cornet players (position negotiable), as over the past couple of years we have lost some of our younger players to university. (Note, w e have a sop and flugel available to loan, if necessary.)
Although we don't have any other vacancies at present, we're always happy to hear from experienced players that want to join the band -- we can usually find a space for you.
The band is now gearing up for the Ensemble and Quartets contest in October. We are looking forward to fielding at least one quartet and hoping for as successful a result as last year!
