Nottingham Symphonic Wind Orchestra
The Nottingham Symphonic Wind Orchestra is one of the leading wind orchestras in the UK, with the aim of entertaining and educating audiences with music of the highest quality, whilst raising funds for local charities.
The orchestra is made up of players from a wide variety of backgrounds, both inside and outside music, who come together with a common desire to find the heart of the music and communicate it to everyone.
With a diverse repertoire ranging from classical and modern wind orchestral music to film, show and jazz, the Orchestra can produce a fitting programme for any audience. Indeed, its 'Kidsophonic' concerts have been a staple of many families' Christmas for years.
2017 sees the Nottingham Symphonic Wind Orchestra's 30th anniversary which will be marked with newly commissioned pieces and a revisit of some of the best repertoire of the last 30 years of the Orchestra.
We hope you will join us in our celebrations.
Keiron Anderson 2017
Keiron Anderson, Musical Director and Conductor
Keiron Anderson was appointed musical director and conductor of the Nottingham Symphonic Wind Orchestra in 2006.
As one of the most experienced and innovative conductors of wind groups in the country, Keiron also conducts the Yorkshire Wind Orchestra and in 2005 he guest-conducted the National Saxophone Choir of Great Britain at the Edinburgh Festival, including a premiere of his own work.
Keiron is a firm believer in the accessibility of all the music played under his direction,  even though some of it may be unfamiliar to the audiences. He is a consummate all-round musician experienced as a teacher, musical director, performer and composer.
