Another sell out concert at Waterlooville Music Festival
Meridian Winds performed at the final night of the Waterlooville Music Festival - Saturday 17th June 2017 at St George's Church. We call it "The last night of the Proms" and it follows the format of the eponymous event at the Royal Albert Hall. It was brilliant gig for the band, and by all accounts the audience loved it too.
Make sure you book early for next year, 2018 !
Meridian Winds was formed in 1996 by two instrumental teachers, Tim Norris and Tim Warren, and is made up of professional musicians, teachers and students. The object of the ensemble is to rehearse and perform wind band music of all styles to the highest possible standards.
The ensemble meets on a regular basis to rehearse at The Gregg School in Southampton and has a varied repertoire. This ranges from the best of contemporary music through transcriptions of film and TV scores to the more conventional military band fare of marches, waltzes and overtures. Listen to us play.
As well as our concert work, we are always delighted to play for the local community based festivals and we welcome enquiries from organizers. We also work closely with local schools and colleges, encouraging young musicians to enjoy their music making and broadening their knowledge of this very accessible medium through workshops and concerts.
