The Nottingham Symphonic Wind Orchestra
The Nottingham Symphonic Wind Orchestra is considered to be one of the leading orchestras of this type in the UK. Our aim is to perform music to the highest standard enabling us to entertain our audiences whilst raising funds for local charities and organisations.
The players in the orchestra come from a variety of backgrounds, both inside and outside of music. They come together with a common desire to find the heart of music and communicate their enjoyment of the music to everyone.
The Wind Orchestra is able to play a dazzlingly diverse repertoire from well-known orchestral classics, through jazz, swing, film and show tunes to modern wind orchestral music. This is possible because of the versatility of the musicians and the instruments they play. Audience members who are unsure what to expect on their first visit come away knowing that this is great music and musicianship and return to hear us time and again. Our musical programmes are tailored to our audience, as those who have attended our ‘Kidsophonic’ concerts will confirm. Kidsophonic has become part of the Christmas tradition for many families in the East Midlands!
