Cleobury Mortimer Concert Brass is a band straight out of the ‘Shire’, with our 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 in 2011, CMCB have qualified for the Finals of the National Championship of Great Britain, finishing second in 2016, with the last appearance being in 2023, when the band finished third at the Regional Finals.
The band can also be found playing regular concerts throughout the year as well as playing bandstands across the West Midlands. For more information on what we're up to, keep an eye on our social media channels.
2023 welcomes David Nicholson to the stand. David comes with a wealth of brass banding experience, including five years as a baritone and euphonium player with the The International Staff Band and ten years as Bandmaster of the Birmingham Citadel Band. David has demonstrated his success when it comes to competing, having previously led St Austell Town Band, Redruth Town Band and City of Coventry Brass. David has recently been appointed a Director and Trustee of Black Dyke Band.
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.
