Welcome to Meridian Winds
And already it is nearly Christma 2016 - where has the last year gone ?
We always have a Family Concert sometime in December. Mince pies, a raffle and Xmas Music, aided and abetted by the "Juniors" - member's children. All this in the main hall at Gregg School which has a wonderful Christmassy feel about it.
You can come and listen to us play at The Gregg School on Sunday 19th March, when Gregg holds its' "Open Gardens Day". More details on the school website
Meridian Winds was formed in 1987 by two instrumental teachers, Tim Norris and Tim Warren, and is made up of professional musicians, teachers and students. The object of the ensemble is to rehearse and perform wind band music of all styles to the highest possible standards.
The ensemble meets on a regular basis to rehearse at The Gregg School in Southampton and has a varied repertoire. This ranges from the best of contemporary music through transcriptions of film and TV scores to the more conventional military band fare of marches, waltzes and overtures. Listen to us play
As well as our concert work, we are always delighted to play for the local community based festivals and we welcome enquiries from organizers. We also work closely with local schools and colleges, encouraging young musicians to enjoy their music making and broadening their knowledge of this very accessible medium through workshops and concerts.
