The Westernairs consist of about 40 amateur musicians mostly from South East Cornwall who play for pleasure and charity. The current Musical Director is Susie Tolley a professional musician from St Cleer who is also the founding MD. The continued success of the band is down to her, though the band committee do relieve her of some of the administrative tasks.
The band consists of flutes, clarinets, saxophones, trombones, euphoniums, french horns, trumpets, tubas, xylophone and percussion. We have a few concerts throughout the year, at local Fetes, Carnivals, Schools and Christmas events. Any monies we raise is donated to charity.
We practice every Tuesday evening at Liskeard Methodist Church Hall from 7.30 - 9.30pm and always welcome new players so if you are interested in joining us check out the “Contact Us“ and “How to join“ links.
