LUUMS CONCERT BAND

Concert Band is one of the non-auditioned ensembles within LUUMS, performing a variety of genres ranging from film scores to wind band classics. The band is compiled of brass, woodwind and percussion players of all abilities. The pieces played in Concert Band contain a mixture of parts so there are opportunities for everyone to play confidently. Concert Band has a relaxed vibe, catering to those who want to play for fun and make new friends while still performing high quality music.

 

Concert Band performs regularly throughout the year. These performances include concerts as part of the LUUMS concert series across both terms, some busking at Christmas all through Leeds City Centre and the ensemble showcases, where we perform with all the other non-auditioned ensembles within LUUMS.

 

Concert Band is proud to have large involvement with a diverse membership across all academic disciplines.

 

After every rehearsal, there is a relaxed trip to Old Bar, where band members can socialise. Other social highlights of the year include an annual summer BBQ, a festive Christmas party and activities such as Trampolining and trips to Laser Quest. We also participate in wider LUUMS socials which take place throughout the year, including an annual ball and live music events.

Concert Band rehearsals have now started but don't worry if you have missed the first couple, just come along and play!
