The Band

The band is led by Musical Director Saphran Ali.

We are a social band with a variety of engagements throughout the year including formal concerts, bandstand performances and contests. We have recently been promoted to the third section.

With our new Musical Director (June 2019) and a brand new rehearsal venue from January 2020 there has never been a more exciting time to join the City of Birmingham Brass Band. We’re always happy to hear from any brass players or percussionists interested in joining us on any instrument and we would particularly like to hear from those who could fill the following seats:

We currently have vacancies on following instruments:

  • Cornets
  • Horns
  • Basses (Eb and Bb)
  • Percussion

If you’d like to join our friendly band, come and try out at one of our Tuesday rehearsals at the Selly Park Tavern. Contact for more information.
