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. Last year we won the Shield section of the competition – so will be moving up to the Trophy section this year and will need to defend our place! It's a fantastic weekend for everyone involved and not to be missed! This year we will also be hosting the Tri-Uni concert with Warwick and Durham universities, where we’ll have the opportunity to perform some of our repertoire, as well as playing some joint pieces with their Brass Bands too! We will have various concerts throughout the year – including regular termly LUUMS concerts, as well as a few special events we have in the works. 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 really excited for the coming year and are always looking for new members and would love to see some new faces at the start of the year!

Brass Band rehearsal 5-7pm on a Tuesday evening in the School of Music rehearsal hall.

 Come along to our TASTER SESSION on the 4th of October!
