Welcome to the Corby Silver Band Website

Corby Silver Band - Established 1902

Updated 20th November 2014

About us

Corby Silver Band is a brass band, that was formed for the Pole Fair in 1902 making it one of the oldest bands in the local area.

Although the majority of our players come from Corby, we have players from Kettering and Rushden and other surrounding towns and villages.  

Our players are hard working and committed and this shows in the many indoor and outdoor concerts we perform each year. We also constantly strive to improve our playing ability by participating in contests.

We try to find the correct balance of serious music making, whilst still having fun, making new
friends and joining in with social events.

Our musicians

Our musicians come from a wide range of musical backgrounds with a range of abilities and experience,  from the younger members for whom Corby Silver is their first brass band, to players who have many, many years experience playing in a wide variety of musical groups.

Many of our musicians are members of other local brass bands and orchestras so we have a good relationship with many other musical ensembles across the local area.

We perform many concerts during the summer months.
