We are a concert band based in Rosyth. As a community wind band we welcome musicians of all standards. Our only stipulation is that members are over the age of 9 years.
Our emphasis is on having fun with music. We see a rehearsal not only as an opportunity to play music but also a way to meet up with other people with a similar interest. If you play a wind band instrument, or did so in the past and it’s now lying in the attic gathering dust, come and join us.
We often support other organisations in their fundraising by playing concerts for them. So if you are an event organiser looking for a band feel free to contact us and we can discuss options.
Enjoy our site!
Following the relaxation of COVID restrictions, the Band’s activities have resumed. Rehearsals take place each Monday, starting at 7.00 pm, in the Rosyth Baptist Church Hall, although we take a break during the Fife school summer holidays.
Rosyth Concert Band is a phoenix that rose from the ashes. Originally a Boys Brigade band at the Parish Church in Rosyth, when the band folded some members of the congregation got together to carry on with some of the youngsters who wanted to continue and meet weekly to keep up the musical tradition.
From a time when the band consisted of a dozen or so musicians playing a myriad of instruments; flutes, recorders, clarinets, trumpets, valve trombones and front facing baritones playing from Brass Band music, it has evolved into a fully functioning wind band.
Nowadays we are able to field most of the standard instruments comprising a wind band including flutes, clarinets, trumpets, saxophones, trombones, tubas, horns, keyboard and percussion.
Our emphasis is on enjoying our music. We are a community band supporting events locally and in the surrounding areas. We enjoy nothing more than performing in public for other’s enjoyment and are happiest when someone asks us to play at their event.
The Band members are volunteers and they have performed over many years in support of fundraising for local community groups and national charities. Most recently, these include, the Langtoun Jazz Festival, Kirkcaldy Old Kirk Tower Fund, ‘Playlist for Life’, Burntisland Community Council Christmas Lights Appeal and Dalgety Bay Gala.. If you are holding an event and think you’d enjoy having a band then contact us and we can discuss options.
The Band’s concert in Burntisland in November 2019 was to support the work of the local community council and the efforts of its Christmas Lights Fundraising Group. This picture shows the Band’s MD, Bill McCance (far right), band member Richard Perry and members of the Community Council.
