Description

 

 

Durham University Concert Band is a friendly, non-auditioning group open to all brass, woodwind and percussion players. Our weekly rehearsals are friendly and relaxed, and we always aim to make our music both accessible and musically challenging. The band’s repertoire is vast and varied – last year our music included film scores (My Fair Lady, Spirited Away), Broadway musicals (Les Miserables, Lion King, Miss Saigon), full concert band suites and classical works (Carmen) arranged specifically for the band. We are committed to playing new music and arrangements as much as possible, so you can guarantee that we won’t be playing the same tunes every term! We usually have at least three concerts a year, including at least one outdoors. The band isn’t just about playing music though, as we hold frequent socials throughout the year. As well as meals, bar crawls and post-concert drinks. Last year, we went on tour in Edinburgh and we’re hoping to go abroad next year!
