Ely Band Celebrates 60 years of Musical Memories.
From humble beginnings in December 1962 to all that followed.
On 11th October 2009 the Band was presented with ‘Freedom of the City’ status at a civic service in Ely Cathedral. This was in recognition of all the concerts and parades for the people and organisations of Ely, proudly taking Ely’s name all over East Anglia and London, marching in the Lord Mayors Parade in 1977 and 1979.
A wonderful moment for the band, remembering all the events the band had taken part in and all the people who have been part of the band.
Recently, we played for the Queens Jubilee and at the Kings Proclamation and will be playing carols again this year so look out for us on Ely Market Square in December.
Today the Band is smaller but still making music and entertaining. Mr. Malcolm Fletcher has been with the Band since 1962 and is still playing today.
Our Musical Director Mr. Phil Green has been a member since 1971 and will be guiding the Band through our Christmas Concert, full of Christmas music, with tea and mince pies for everyone to enjoy. We look forward to seeing you.
