The Crescendos is the new name for our Junior Band, now it now has people of ALL ages learning to play and growing as musicians. The Junior Band was formed in 1973 and its main objective has always been to give the opportunity of learning a brass instrument to any person who has the desire.
The Ratby Crescendos organise their own concerts and fulfil engagements throughout the year including ‘Brass in the Park’. As the players achieve the required ability they can progress from the Beginners Band to the Crescendo Band and beyond. The Crescendos are conducted by music teacher and band trainer Becky Cook. Becky also plays principal trombone with the Senior Band.
