Christchurch Music Centre is a volunteer led organisation that has, for more than three decades, supported the musical ambitions of many young people in the local area.
The aims of the group are to:
Inspire and encourage the talents of young people to make music
Offer opportunities to perform to the public at a variety of venues
Provide an enjoyable and friendly learning environment to enable musicians to develop their talents
Support musicians of all ages and abilities
Play a variety of musical genres including classical, jazz, pop and film scores
To have Fun!
At present we run:
Junior Wind Band (grade 1 to grade 4)
Senior Wind Band (grade 4+)
Saxophone Ensemble (by invitation)
Brass Quintet (by invitation)
Both bands are frequently asked to perform at events across East Dorset, providing musical entertainment for the switching on of Christmas lights, supporting various charity events, and entertaining crowds on summer afternoons by Christchurch and Bournemouth bandstands.
Christchurch Music Centre is an independent group and is fully self funded.
We are committee run by a team of volunteers who work very hard to help make the group the success that it is.
Here's a very small selection of our repertoire:
The Greatest Showman
Happy (from Despicable Me 2)
Pirates of the Caribbean
The Simpsons Theme
Star Trek Through the Years
Wallace & Gromit
