Welcome to our new website…

Feel free to have a look around and find out more about our ensembles and staff then we’d love to see you on a Saturday morning.

Nothing beats making music together – it’s good for the soul and did you know, learning an instrument is (according to one study) the number 1 activity for raising your IQ? 

We are proud of our tradition for bringing people together from across Whitby’s community to make music and have a range of ensembles to suit different abilities that we are planning to add to in the near future.





What we offer…

We currently offer five ensembles that all rehearse on term-time Saturday mornings: Esk Valley Concert Band and Wider Trainers meet from 9.30am-10.45am; Esk Valley Big Band, Whitby Area Concert Band and Whitby Music Centre String Ensemble rehearse from 11am-12.15pm.

Everyone is welcome, most of our bands include children and adults and of all standards including beginners.  You are welcome to join one or two ensembles.
