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

Following the recent developments regarding the Corona Virus and the government's latest guidelines regarding non-essential gatherings, I have taken the decision to cancel the Spring concert and to suspend all rehearsals until further notice. I will of course keep you all informed as to when rehearsals will resume.

I appreciate that this is a disappointment but I feel I must take the health and wellbeing of our members and supporters into consideration during this difficult period.

Stay safe and well
