We are Stroud Area Wind Orchestra (SAWO), a community wind orchestra who rehearse and regularly perform in and around Stroud. We enjoy playing music ranging from classic concert band pieces including marches, film and television scores, musicals, and contemporary arrangements for concert band. We enjoy keeping our programmes fresh and exciting, for audiences and players alike!

coronavirus update

We're excited to be back rehearsing again, following best practice guidance and a thorough risk assessment as laid out by Brass Bands England.

This includes measures such as social distancing, bell coverings, thorough cleaning, and meeting only in groups of less than 30 at covid-secure venues.

Our new rehearsal space is at the Marling School Music Centre.
