The University Concert Band is a thriving and popular group which tackles the full range of the wind band repertoire from popular music from films and shows, to works specifically written for band, including several composed especially for the group.
Recently performed repertoire includes Dance Sequence by Gareth Wood, Hwbl Bwbl by Jules Riley (World Premiere), and an arrangement of The Lion King.
There are no auditions to join the band and membership is open to anyone. Most of the players are students but there is also enthusiastic participation by a wide section of other local musicians. The group achieves excellent standards in a relaxed and sociable rehearsal atmosphere. There is always a welcome for new members. Anyone interested should contact the Music Centre or simply turn up to a rehearsal.
Director: Mr Harry Jepson
Monday evenings 7.30 to 9.30, Old College Hall, King Street.
