Community Wind Band release two exceptional pieces
July 27, 2022

The Rydal Penrhos Community Wind Band released two exceptional pieces for music lovers to enjoy as the group continues to thrive.

It’s been fantastic to see the Rydal Penrhos Community Wind Band continuing to draw significant interest after forming earlier this year.

The initial period since its inception has been hugely successful for the group, which is led by Mr Clive Wolfendale, a former parent and current member of Rydal Penrhos’ governing body.

The Community Wind Band is open to current pupils, alumni, parents, staff and local musicians from across Colwyn Bay and the wider region. A true example of school and community spirit that’s been evident throughout Rydal Penrhos for more than a century.

Players of all brass, woodwind and percussion instruments are welcome to attend rehearsal sessions which are held on Wednesday evenings from 7-8.30pm in the Rick Maple Drama Studio on Combermere Road, Colwyn Bay.

There is no charge and instruments are available to borrow if required by anyone wishing to attend.

The school was delighted to receive two fantastic pieces produced by the Community Wind Band recently, which were published in the latest edition of the Rydal Penrhos Society newsletter and on our YouTube channel.

Soldier Soldier‘ and ‘Black is the Colour‘ are just two pieces that the group have devised so far. The Community Wind Band are also scheduled to make an appearance during the school’s annual Founders’ Weekend celebrations in September.

We would like to congratulate Mr Wolfendale and the Rydal Penrhos Community Wind Band on their exceptional commitment over the past few months. This a trend we hope will continue long into the future.
