Since it’s formation in 1984, CONCORD has built a reputation for excellence and for pioneering innovative ideas in the marching band activity. We have faced and overcome many difficulties and always offered our members the very best of opportunities to excel and experience a variety of musical experiences.
For 25 years CONCORD performed as one of Britain’s foremost competitive drum and bugle corps collecting many honours and awards in the UK and Europe. In 2008 the management and membership took the bold step of withdrawing from the constrictions of the competition arena and embarked upon a “new direction” offering members and staff a whole new series of challenges. These gave the opportunity to explore new areas and formats of musical and visual entertainment, to learn to use new instruments and to add amplification and electronic forms of music-making.
