About Us

Macclesfield Brass is a community brass band for adults with different musical backgrounds. We have three different types of members who join us:
  • Absolute beginners
  • Players who haven’t played for a while
  • Experienced musicians new to brass or percussion instruments.
The band also attracts former youth band players and benefits greatly from their support.

Our diversity of membership has created a unique music group in Macclesfield which embraces musical genres beyond the traditional brass band repertoire. We aim to enable everyone to experience the thrill and pleasure of making music together to a good standard whatever their stage of learning.

We have grown from 12 members in January 2016 to 30 members now with performing being a key part of what we do. We have played at numerous community events in Macclesfield and the surrounding area - take a look at our Past Performances page to see more.

Instruments can be borrowed from the band for free and there are no auditions. Tuition and individual player development is an integral part of what the band offers.

Rehearsals take place in Macclesfield on Wednesday evenings 7.30 – 9.00pm.
