Cleobury Mortimer Concert Brass is a band straight out of the ‘Shire’, with their base being the Parish Hall in the sleepy town of Cleobury Mortimer, but don’t let its lethargic origin’s mislead you…
After making a return to the competition circuit, CMCB were 4th Section Champions at Wychavon in 2011, National Finalists at Cheltenham in 2012 and in March 2014, made their debut in the 3rd Section at the Midlands Areas. In 2016 they were crowned 4th section Midlands Champions and went on to take 2nd at the National Brass Band Championships. 2017 was another exciting yearm, with a 3rd at the Midland Areas and another trip to Cheltenham. 2018 has seen us promoted to the third section with a 3rd place in the Midland Areas, with another trip to Cheltenham scheduled for September 2018.
CMCB are also on the lookout for the future, and every evening before the main band rehearse, the kids are let loose on the instruments. They boast success from several local competitions, much of which can be credited to Jack Martin and Katie Griffiths, with Katie sitting on the front row with CMCB.
You can find us practising on Tuesday evenings at Cleobury Mortimer Parish Hall where you more than welcome to join us. Whether you're a seasoned pro or just starting out, you're welcome in the bandroom.
