About Gloucestershire Symphonic Wind Band

Gloucestershire Symphonic Wind Orchestra is aimed at advanced wind, brass and percussion players.  it provides an opportunity to tackle advanced repertoire and perform at a high level.

The orchestra has a well stocked library and plays a wide variety of music, including original 20th century wind band scores through to arrangements of popular and classical music.   

The orchestra gives four or five public performances a year in concert halls, churches and outdoor venues. Auditions are required.  These are achieved within two full rehearsals to ensure members rehearse and perform to a required level.  As a guide, a minimum Associated Board Grade 7 equivalent, or above, is required.

Rehearsals take place at Colwell Arts Centre, 7pm-9pm on Monday evenings, term time only. Please see the calendar for further rehearsal information.
