Whilst we welcome
enquiries from any brass player, we have specific vacancies for:
- Eb and Bb bass
returning musicians - or confident beginners - are welcome to enquire
about these and other vacancies (since some existing members can be
flexible about moving to alternative positions...)

you from our range of quality Instruments - and provide a uniform -

non-marching band, and practice every Tuesday
evening from 7:30 - 9:30pm at locations alternating between Rievaulx
and Chop Gate. More details, and maps are given here

at about 20 engagements a year, mostly at
weekends, in some of the most beautiful places in Yorkshire, including
stately homes, abbeys, and seaside resorts

of traditional brass band pieces (marches, hymns, and arrangements of
classics and show tunes)
- Joining the band
provides a unique opportunity to join a group of amateur musicians based

been thriving for over 150 years.
