About The Orpington Band

The Orpington Band was founded in 1925 and provides a unique combination of nurturing beginners and providing a platform for more experienced players to perform together.  Originally established as the Orpington Silver Band playing marching and other brass band repertoires, it now plays a wide selection of music from old classics to modern pop and film music.  

The Beginners band is for all ages and musical abilities and includes group lessons and playing easy to learn tunes (see details on Beginners Page). 

"ORPINGTON BRASS & SAX BAND will be starting a new Beginners' Class in early September, ably assisted by the Improvers' Band.
 

The Improvers Band will appeal to new members as it provides an opportunity for those  returning to playing are those who develop beyond the Beginners Band  to play music that is more advanced than the Beginners Band (see details on Improvers Band Page).

The Main band plays a wide variety of music and performs at local events such as fetes, Charity events and special quiz nights (see Events Page for details).
