Combining contemporary music with traditional favourites

The White Cliffs Symphonic Winds

The White Cliffs Symphonic Winds was formed in January 2004.

The band was originally set up as the St. Edmund’s Community Symphonic Wind Band in 2004 and over the years has raised more than £25,000 for local, national and international charities.

Now it has a new name and a new venue for rehearsals back at St Edmund’s Catholic School, Dover, (see the map on the right) and rehearses on Thursdays at 7:30pm.

The band comprises many former ex-Royal Marines musicians as well as other professional musicians, teachers and competent amateurs and students and will continue to delight audiences with a mix of traditional and contemporary wind band music, whilst raising money for charities.

As the name implies, the band plays mainly modern compositions that are of an advanced level but for concerts more traditional items are included. Click here for details of our next concert including the proposed programme.

There are vacancies for some instrumental categories.
