Wakefield Orchestral Wind - putting the WOW into music since 1990!


In light of the government's updated advice that non-essential travel and non-essential social contact should be avoided it is with deep regret that we have taken the difficult decision to suspend rehearsals for the time being in order to prioritise the safety and well-being of our members.

We will of course be keeping an eye on the situation and will commence rehearsals again as soon as it is safe to do so.

In the meantime we send our very best wishes to our members, their families and all our supporters!

Westroyd Park, Farsley - Sunday 12th July 2020 - cancelled

Today, we should have been playing at Westroyd Park, Farsley - a new engagement for us - but of course due to Covid-19 we are not able to.

This is a photo of us playing at Ossett Gala this weekend five years ago.

We're not sure when things will be back to "normal". In the meantime we hope that everyone stays well and we look forward to being able to entertain you again.

Moment for Morricone - our tribute

We were sorry to hear yesterday of the sad news of the death of the Italian composer Ennio Morricone.
In tribute to him, here's another chance to hear our performance of Moment for Morricone from last year's concert at Trinity Netherton.

We absolutely love playing his music!

Making Music Day - 21st June 2020

WOW is a member of Making Music - an organisation which specifically caters for groups like ours, choirs etc. As Making Music Day couldn't be in its usual format his year, they decided to create a virtual ensemble and choir.

Overall 199 musicians and singers took part - including some members from our midst.

We hope you enjoy this performance of Bring me Sunshine!

With rehearsals off the agenda for the time being, a group of us got together virtually to create a performance of the 80s classic, Venus.
