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.

Love and Farewell

June 7, 2016

We have had a great summer term so far in York. After an enjoyable day out for many band members at the Whit Friday marches and some fantastic performances at the university Goodfest event and Love York awards, we are now reaching the end of the summer term.

This means that it is time for our annual summer concert, this year entitled Love and Farewell. It will be held in the Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall (directions) on 12th June, beginning at 2pm. With some brass banding classics alongside more modern music, there promises to be something for everyone. Tickets can be bought on the door, so we look forward to seeing you there!
