About Us

History of the band

The Stroud Area Wind Orchestra was founded in 2016.  The wind orchestra’s first rehearsal was on the 7th June 2016 and held their first concert after just 7 weeks of rehearsals on the 26th July 2016.

The band has since grown in size and currently has an average of 40 playing members ranging in ages from 13 to over 75!  Our members come from all walks of life and we welcome new players all year round.

Our existing Musical Director is Phil Storer.
