Junior Band

In order to secure the future of both our own organisation and the brass band tradition in the Rhondda as a whole, an innovative policy of training young people in the art of brass playing was adopted by the Parc & Dare Band and its committee in the form of the Parc & Dare Junior Band.

The band also a participant organisation of the Cory Academy and members will be offered associated tutition and the opportunity to particpate in organised events.

In the past the Parc & Dare Junior Band have performed with groups from Zimbabwe, St Kitts in the Caribbean and Carnival with BBC Wales’ weatherman Derek Brockway.

The Parc & Dare Junior band have also appeared alongside Parc & Dare Band events in venues which include the Wales Millennium Centre, the Coliseum Theatre, Aberdare, and Parc & Dare Theatre, Treorchy.

Membership is open to any budding brass players or percussionists who would like to learn an instrument.

Instruments, uniforms and tuition are provided by the band free of charge. Members are asked to contribute the sum of £1 per week towards the upkeep of the band room, maintenance of instruments and the purchase of new music.

For more information on our Junior Band, please contact us on enquiries@parcanddareband.co.uk or pop along to the band room on a Tuesday evening from 6.30pm
