© Mold Town Concert Band
The band was originally formed as the Argoed Concert Band in 1997. Adopted by Mold Town Council in 1999 we became the Mold Town Band, changing our name in 2002 to Mold Town Concert Band (in order to avoid being confused with a brass or silver band!)
The band continues to thrive, having seen a recent expansion in membership, & currently
consists of over 40 friendly & enthusiastic musicians who play a variety of woodwind/brass
instruments. We are open to all ages from school students through to retired members
There is no entry audition but the recommended level of proficiency, in order to
enjoy participation is a minimum equivalent to approx. Grade 3 -
A constantly evolving repertoire ranges from serene to swing -
The band is a registered charity and receives support from the Mold Town Council
in return for 'official duties' such as the Remembrance Sunday Parade, playing at
the switching on of Christmas illuminations and at Mold Carnival. Performances encompass
a variety of venues, both open-
The band is also grateful for the support it receives from Ty Cerdd (formally the
Welsh Amateur Music Federation). Members pay a small monthly subscription -
Rehearsals take place on Monday evenings in Mold Town Hall, Earl Road (opposite the Post Office) between 7.15 pm and 9.15 pm (except during August and Bank Holidays).
Rehearsals are always enjoyable, under the expert guidance of our musical director Geoff Coward, so if you are considering joining a band for the first time, or feel like getting back to playing, you could not make a better choice than Mold Town Concert Band!
We have been delighted to welcome a number of new members over recent months so if you want to join see our contacts page and/or come along to a rehearsal and have a go!
