Welcome to MRCBB
The Moss Rose Community Brass Band was formed in November 2009 and is based on the Moss Rose Estate in Macclesfield, Cheshire, with Owen Parr as Musical Director. The Band aims to provide an opportunity for people living on the estate and in Macclesfield generally to learn something new while enjoying the social side of making music together.
Anyone can join. Some musical experience is useful before joining the band, but, however rusty you are, everyone is welcome. Instruments can be provided and membership is free although members are invited to make a voluntary contribution each week to help pay for the MD and the room (no-one is pressured to make this). In the past, we have set up a special section for absolute beginners so that we could provide training as to which end of our instruments to blow down and which way up to hold them, and if there’s a demand, we will do this again.
The important thing about the non-competing band is the underlying ethic in that we are a community band - for us, the fun of participation is more important than winning competitions.
It’s not called playing music for nothing - it’s supposed to be play, not work!
We meet every Wednesday at 7.30pm at Ash Grove Academy, Belgrave Road, Macclesfield. We welcome new members.
If you would like to find out more about joining the band, or are interested in booking the band for an event, please get in touch - all the details are on the “contact” page.
