Welcome to Test Valley Brass
Welcome to Test Valley Brass - an organisation dedicated to the promotion and enjoyment of live brass band music
in Andover and the surrounding area. We are a family of bands catering for all ages and abilities, and perform at a wide range
of concerts and events throughout the year.
Senior Band - Consisting of the most experienced players within the group, the Senior Band welcomes
players of all abilities and performs at a wide range of engagements from formal concerts, to flower shows, summer fetes,
parades, birthday parties and carol services.
Band - Open to brass and percussion players under the age of 19, the Youth Band provides young people with a fun
and enjoyable environment to play within a brass band, performing at a range of concerts and fetes throughout the year.
Frosty's - A beginner band which introduces
young learners to the art of playing in an ensemble before 'graduating' to the Youth Band (under 19's only).
Senior Academy - A beginner band specifically for
adults which introduces complete beginners to playing brass and percussion instruments in an ensemble before 'graduating'
to the Senior Band.

Test Valley Brass AGM
Valley Brass is a registered charity and each year, around March or April, it holds an AGM to elect a TVB Committee to
manage Test Valley Brass; as well as review the year's bands activities and accounts, which is open for members to
ask questions about. The management of this successful group of brass bands, depends on volunteers who are members and
their support in maintaining a well run community facility. The TVB bands help to develop young musicians and support
local community events, along with giving youngsters, teenagers and adults an opportunity to work as a team, culminating
in successful brass band concerts enjoyed by the residents of Andover, and occassionally by residents of Andover's
twin towns in Goch in Germany and Redon in France, and this year, in Portugal.
Note: The next AGM is scheduled
31st march 2014 8pm to be held at John Hanson School, TVB
Last year's AGM minutes are available to download and are approved by the charity
committee. If you require a copy before the meeting, please download from our TVB downloads page.
