Saturday 2nd March saw the band compete in the Yorkshire Regional Championships playing First Suite In Eb by Gustav Holst.
The band played really well and finished with a 2nd place qualifying for the National Finals in Cheltenham on 15th September.
The bandroom has recently been given a complete renovation courtesy of Robin and Donna Stride to whom we give a massive thank you!
There is now a new heating system, new blinds, upgraded toilet facilities and fresh new paint throughout.
We also boast the best bandroom garden around thanks to our "secret gardener" David Yeomans.
With the introduction of a Patrons Scheme anyone can become a Patron and help our community band.
For a donation annually you will be kept up to date by quarterly newsletter on the bands progress, future events and also get 2 free tickets to any concert you choose.
Your much needed annual donations will be put towards the advancement of the band.
Our current uniforms are 30 years old and in need of replacement. We are also now trying to raise funds for the trip to the national finals in September.
At the bandstand concert on 5th May the band were presented with a cheque for £2,000 towards the band’s new uniforms from our friends Jazz in the Spa, who run jazz concerts every Saturday night in Boston Spa.
"A nice announcement to make from JITS. On Sunday we presented Wetherby Silver Band with a cheque for £2000 from Jazz in the Spa towards the Band’s fund to provide new uniforms. It’s just a little thing we can do to pay it forward. The Wetherby Silver Band has a lot of young members so it’s also good to support the next generation of musicians."
A huge thank you from the Wetherby Silver Band, it is much appreciated.
