It was a delight to perform to a full St Luke’s Church in our Spring Concert, and we are now loving getting to grips with a whole lot of new summer repertoire! Featuring lots of the band members’ favourites as well as our own tribute to the King’s coronation and Disney’s centenary there will be lots to put a smile on our audience’s faces. Come along to one of our public gigs this summer to hear us!
CSD Brass is looking for a regular 2nd percussionist who can play kit when our principal percussionist is unable to be with us. All percussionists welcome – no previous experience with brass bands required!
Spring Concert planning begins!
We are delighted to announce that we will present our Spring Concert at our home of St Luke’s Church, Victoria Road on Sunday 2nd April!

Happy New Year!
We were delighted with our 30th anniversary celebrations and a busy Christmas season to round off 2022 and we are now looking forward to a happy and successful 2023!
Final concert preparations

Downing Place Church, Cambridge, December 2021
What a fabulous evening we had celebrating community music-making with our friends in Sing Out Cambridge! Thank you to everyone who came out on a cold December evening to support us! See some photos of us in the galleries section of the website!
A New Chapter
We have been delighted to be back together in the welcoming surroundings of Arbury Community Centre, Campkin Road, since the beginning of September. We have welcomed several new members and are buoyed up by the feeling of hope and growth as we look towards the future. We are planning several events this Christmas, so do sign up to our mailing list to stay informed!
CSD is back!
We are delighted to have been together rehearsing for the last few weeks, albeit still outdoors for now! From September we expect to be meeting regularly together indoors again to make music, and we would be delighted to hear from you if you are looking for a Cambridge-based, non-contesting, friendly band to join. It’s an exciting time for the band as we work out our recovery plan and we welcome enquiries from any brass or percussion instrumentalists, even if you are considering coming back to music-making after not having played for a while!
Alternatively, come listen to us at Swaffham Bulbeck fair on Saturday 14th August!
Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update Monday 16th March 2020
Following advice from the British government and Brass Bands England (https://www.bbe.org.uk/news/16032020-1755/bbe-statement-the-covid-19-pandemic), and in common with other local bands, CSD Brass has ceased all activities indefinitely.
We will be making efforts to stay in touch socially, and if you have an interest in joining us, please still get in touch. It would be great to get to know you so we can hit the ground running when we do reconvene after the pandemic.
If you are interested in booking the band, we would gladly hear from you, especially for carolling jobs in December, when we expect to be fully back to normal again.
