Big Band and Strings Ensemble
We hope to include the National Scout and Guide Big Band and the National Scout and Guide Strings Ensemble in one of the above concerts at guest artistes.
Since 2015 when Birmingham Scout County became the sponsor for the NSGSO and then subsequently the NSGCB, concerts have been held in prestigious buildings in Birmingham. These have included both the old and the new Conservatoires, the Bramall Hall at Birmingham University, Ruddock Hall, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO) Hall and the MAC Theatre. Additionally the NSGCB have played concerts in the external venues of Grand Central Station, the Birmingham Museum and Library and also Severn Valley Railway Station who welcome us back every year. In 2022 we had the first ever joint concert of both ensembles at Coventry Cathedral.
There is more information about past concerts under history.
