The Band

The Adehyeman Winds Orchestra provides a musical experience of pre-professional training to talented young musicians precisely at Koforidua and its environs in the Eastern Region of Ghana.

Although most members go on to a career in music, they also carry the pride of being part of a unique musical family, with memories and friendships that last for years.


The Adehyeman Winds Orchestra comprises three ensembles:

  • Ahenfo Band – the most senior ensemble in the organization,comprises advanced senior high school and university musicians.
  • Adehye Band – for musicians of senior high school age and particularly advanced junior high school students.
  • Nsroma Band – for younger, less experienced players.

Also, our program often offers smaller traditional music ensembles made up of members from all the bands. All the bands fuse African and western instruments during most performances.


All wind instruments players are welcome to apply. If there are no positions available at this time, applicants will be added to our waiting/spares list. Note: Exceptions may be made to our instrumentation at the Musical Director’s discretion.
We rehearse every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening from 4:30pm – 7:30 pm at Koforidua Cultural Centre.

We invite anyone interested in joining the group to contact us for more information. 

  • If there is availability in the section, we will invite you to our office for an audition.
  • At that time, the conductor will meet with you to take you through the Audition and discuss your membership application.
  • Membership dues are Ghc225/year, and this is undoubtedly money well spent!
