Elland Silver Band is currently one of the regions most successful Championship brass bands, conducted by Brett Baker.
In 2017, the band was promoted to the Championship Section, where it now competes in the Yorkshire Regional Championships alongside some of the finest bands in the world.
The band has a very active Calendar of local concerts, where we support a number of charities and also to raise funds to support the running costs of the band. The band has also performed on the ITV dramas “Where the Heart Is” and “Last of the Summer Wine”.
The bands repertoire is very comprehensive including arrangements of popular orchestral classics, from film music to jazz and popular selections, and of course, brass band standards and marches.
All of our members are amateur musicians, many come from different walks of life, several members are under 18 years of age and have graduated into the senior band from our youth band. Many of the plays have been with the band a number of years.
