Wimbledon Tennis Championships 2023

It was fantastic to be back at Wimbledon with our senior bands, Merton Youth Concert Band and Merton Youth Jazz Orchestra, entertaining the crowds on Day 11 and 12 of the Championships.

Scroll down for photos and we hope you’ll enjoy MYCB playing the Wimbledon theme tune ‘Purple & Green’, conducted by Billy Fisher.

“We see The Merton Youth Concert Band each year at the Wimbledon Championships – It is the highlight of our day. They are all so talented we enjoy the music selection especially Brazil and Purple and Green. We find it moving and inspiring to see young people taking the time to learn an instrument and delivering such a polished performance. Well done to you all including the conductors and teachers.” Pamela McEwan


“At Wimbledon listening to Band from Merton Music Foundation. What a wonderful experience & a lovely way to open my Wimbledon experience.
Have been here many times before & always arrive before the gates open specifically to listen to the band.
I was a teacher for most of my life & I remember seeing my students in a completely different light when they appeared in concerts, plays or presented their art work etc at exhibitions. It takes so much dedication, time & commitment to engage in extra-curricular activities outside of their normal day. Makes me smile seeing the proud parents watching them.
Well done to all members of the band & staff. You all should be extremely proud of yourselves.” Bernadette Newport


“Brilliant music, really added fabulous atmosphere at the tennis, great repertoire and particularly enjoyed the Abba medley!” Helen Chiv
