Hello! We're the University of York Brass Band.

We rehearse once a week (on Sunday evenings) in the Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall on our beautiful campus. We're a student run society and we have a very open, welcoming attitude. We don't hold auditions, and anyone is welcome to come along. We play a wide variety of music of all different standards of difficulty- so no matter how good you are there'll always be something you can play, but accomplished players won't get bored either!

We also have a reputation for being a very sociable society, and regularly get together outside of the band room.

Take a browse through our website to see exactly what we get up to, and if you have any unanswered questions then please don't hesistate to contact us and a member of our committee will get back to you as soon as possible.

The band has a Facebook Group for members as well as a Facebook and Twitter page so everyone can stay updated.

A new Academic Year!

September 30, 2016

It's the start of a new academic year in York! Firstly, welcome back to our returning band members who can look forward to another exciting year of brass banding. And welcome to all the first years who are new to York this year. If you are interested in joining the band (as a fresher or a returning student), you will be able to find us at the Fresher's Fair (on 1st October) in central hall. We rehearse every Sunday from 7pm-9pm in the Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall and it would be great to see some new faces. New and prospective members can also check out our facebook group.

Looking further ahead in the term, the band will be taking part in Easingwold's annual Remembrance parade on Remembrance Sunday. The band has taken part in this event for a number of years now and is proud to be able to do so again.

Naturally, our first term will culminate in seasonal events, especially our winter concert. Keep an eye on the events page as well as our Facebook and Twitter feeds for details near the end of term.
