The Gala Big Band
If you’re a musician from County Durham with a passion for swing, Gala may be the home in Durham you’ve been looking for. With musicians as young as 11 and as old as 83, the Gala Big Band is a community band made up a diverse range of Durham based amateur and semi-pro musicians. Launched as part of BRASS 2014, the band is quickly becoming a permanent feature at Gala Theatre. Rehearsing and performing throughout the year the band also performs public concerts, both at Gala Theatre and elsewhere in the local area. Rehearsals take place in the Gala Studio every other Tuesday from 7.00pm to 9pm during term times. If you’d like to come along get in touch with us on The Gala Big Band.
