LUUMS BRASS BAND
Brass Band is an open ensemble for any and all brass or percussion players regardless of your standard - lots of our players don't play their first instruments when they're with us! Being one of the busiest ensembles, we travel all over the UK for concerts and compete at the National University Brass Band Championships, UniBrass. We've been very successful at the competition over the years, and have recently been promoted from the Shield section to the Trophy section where we placed 8th. It's a fantastic weekend for everyone involved and not to be missed! This year we will also be travelling to Durham for our Tri-Uni concert with Warwick and Durham universities, extending our wide range of performance opportunities. As well as concert performances, we are frequently called upon for official University functions, including opening ceremonies for new buildings and the University Carol Service. The University clearly agrees with our unofficial status as the best ensemble in LUUMS... We can't forget, however, our amazing socials that take place throughout the year, especially our legendary Pancake Day social, a true Brass Band Tradition. Above all though, we love to hang out as a Band. We're an extremely sociable ensemble and our post rehearsal pub trips to Old Bar are always a great time for a drink or for a chat. We're always looking for new members and would love to see some new faces at the start of the year!
Rehearsals for Brass Band have now started. Don't worry if you missed the first couple of rehearsals, just come along and join in!
