Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service
The band is delighted to announce that it has been awarded The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. This is the highest award a local voluntary group can receive in the UK and is equivalent to an MBE. We have been recognised for our amazing volunteers who have helped us to create our vibrant band, bringing brass music and opportunities to all within the heart of the community. (more….)
Amersham Band provides education in brass music for all ages and abilities through teaching, rehearsals and performance. For a modest subscription anyone can join one of our bands and enjoy the benefits of group music making. We have a comprehensive range of bands and also have links to freelance music teachers for those wanting individual tuition.
