Thame Concert Band was formed in 1993 and is made up of around twenty local musicians. We rehearse every Tuesday evening at Christchurch, High Street, Thame and produce several concerts and Fete performances every year.
Follow us on Facebook.
Our Conductor and Musical Director, Callum Rookes, also conducts and directs Soundforce Big Band: "Being Musical Director of a Wind Band and a Big Band offers different challenges - different voices, different styles of play, different timbres and different forces. It also requires an understanding of all the capabilities of the instruments in the orchestra. My key responsibilities are to structure concerts, plan rehearsals, motivate the musicians and nurture their development."
Our wide repertoire of over 400 pieces varies from show selections, film themes, popular classics and solo features. The band is a lively and friendly group of locals of all ages, backgrounds and musical abilities, and welcomes anyone wishing to join – particularly in the brass and percussion sections. See the New Members page for further details. Come and listen to us, tell your friends, book us for your village fete or fund raising concert.
We are holding a Spring Concert on Sunday 8th May at Christchurch in Thame.
