The Rogerstone Community Band are extremely pleased to announce the appointment of our new Musical Director, Mr Robert Burnett.  

Rob started playing as a boy in the Salvation Army under the tutelage of his Father. After leaving the Salvation Army he went on to play Solo Euphonium with some of the top brass bands in Wales, these include, The Cory Band, Tredegar and Parc & Dare.

Having played under many of the very finest conductors in the Brass Band world he decided he would like to pass all that vast experience on and combine conducting with playing. He has coached and conducted many bands in South Wales including a spell as resident conductor with the Tredegar Band.

Travelling further afield he accepted invitations to conduct, teach and play throughout mainland Europe and Scandinavia.

After spending several years living in France, where Rob played and conducted with several music ensembles, he returned to South Wales and has been very busy since helping to coach several bands whilst maintaining his role as Solo Euphonium with the Mid Rhondda Band.

This is a very exciting time for The Rogerstone Community Band and we are looking forward to working with such an inspirational and talented conductor and bandsman.

We would like to extend our thanks and best wishes to Andy Wareham, who had directed the band from its re-launch in February 2017. Andy has decided to focus his time and effort on his studies and his extremely busy schedule with RWCMD and M2 brass band. 

The Rogerstone Community Band is delighted to announce that the Newport Borough Brass Band has made the Rogerstone Band bandroom their new permanent home.

This is a fantastic development, which shows how important it is to support a fellow brass band.

Our Chairman said "It is great to see the spirit of banding here. Two bands coming together to help support each other is exactly what Brass Banding is all about. We hope Newport Borough Band have a pleasant and long stay with us and we wish them the best with their endavours."

Newport Borough Band rehearse Monday and Thursday between 7pm and 9pm. New players are always welcome. For further information, please contact their Band Secretary Kirsty Davies on 07794 253954

It is an exciting time for the band. The Rogerstone Community Band will be back on stage after an 18 month period of non performing, we are very pleased to welcome back a number of veteran players as well as many new faces who are supporting our new venture.

Rehearsals are well attended. If any other player wishes to attend our rehearsals, they are held on a Friday evening every fortnight. The formal set up of 25 Brass players plus percussion is not a requirement within our organisation, the more who attend the more enjoyable and social the organisation will become.

We also welcome members of the public to come and listen and learn about our Organisation as we progress into the future.
