Currently the band is seeking Trombone, Tenor Sax and Tuba Players.
All players should have a good standard of performance with equally strong sightreading skills. Alongside this, you should have a high commitment to rehearsals & engagements.
If you play a concert band instrument that isnt listed here and feel like we may be the band for you, then please do contact us as vacancies in other areas of the band do arise and we may have just the spot for you.
The Band rehearses in its bandroom at;
Shaw Lane Rugby Club
Barnsley, S70 6HZ on Monday evenings from 19:14 until 21:30
The Yorkshire Military Band and Corps of Drums
The Yorkshire Military Band is one of the premier civilian military bands in the United Kingdom
Based in the centre of Barnsley, South Yorkshire, the band is located near to the M1 Motorway which makes it ideal for the travelling that it undertakes due to the variety of its engagememts.
The band attracts players who are military veterans but the majority of its membership is taken up by players from the local community. There are a few members who travel in to rehearsals from further afield primarily because they not only seek a professional band like this one but because of the opportunities that are available.
