We are a small friendly concert band of about 25 players, currently based in Morden.
Originally formed in 1981 the band was the brainchild of a former Mayor of London Borough of Merton. The band had strong links with the famous Mantovani Orchestra through its star trumpeter Stan Newsome who was the founder conductor of the band. Stan died in 1989 but his motto is still maintained today that, “the audience should be entertained, not educated.”
We currently rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 7.45pm to 9.15pm (arrive from 7.30pm) at Morden Baptist Church, Crown Lane, Morden Surrey SM4 5BL.
We play a wide variety of music from our extensive library including show music, jazz and classical arrangements, marches and pop music. If you are interested in joining us, please complete the contact form below.
