Phoenix Concert Band: A History
The Phoenix Concert Band was founded in July 2001 by Geraint Jones, its first Music Director. It was formed to provide adult wind, brass and percussion players the opportunity to perform together as a community wind band.
The first rehearsal was held at Ability Mencap, Chesterfield in August 2001. We since moved to our present location, Hasland Methodist Church, as numbers grew. 
We have a membership of about 30 players from a range of ages and professions. Players from the counties of Derbyshire, South Yorkshire, North Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire borders.
Our aim is to combine the honing of musical skills with a friendly, enjoyable rehearsal atmosphere. We play regular concerts in Hasland and many other locations, both indoor and outdoor.  We also perform fundraising concerts for various charities including the Chesterfield Mayor's Appeal. 
"To send light into the darkness of men's hearts - such is the duty of the artist

Enquire about booking the band, purchasing tickets for future concerts and joining the band.
We do not audition but the minimum level is about Grade 5.
More important is a commitment to attend rehearsals and concerts and to improve as a player.
