Current Members

Bewdley Concert Band members come from Bewdley, Kidderminster and Stourport, also from Bridgnorth and Stourbridge and some come from as far away as Bilston, Bromsgrove and even Pershore.  Many are experienced  musicians but we also have less experienced players. All we ask is that our members are enthusiastic and willing to work towards their best performance.
