Summer concert 2019


We are the University of York Brass Band.

We are a non-auditioning university band, so anyone is welcome to come along. We play a wide variety of music of all different standards of difficulty. No matter how good you are there’ll always be something you can play, but accomplished players won’t get bored either! Rehearsals are once a week (on Sunday evenings) in the Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall.

The band holds two concerts a year, and takes part in both UniBrass and Whit Friday. We also have a reputation for being a very sociable society, and regularly get together outside of the band room.

If you have any unanswered questions then please do not hesitate 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 Word from the Chair

After joining UYBB as a fresher in 2017, I have come to love playing and performing alongside every single member of the band. I feel there is a real sense of family at every rehearsal and social event. The band’s recent achievements show how amazingly everyone can work together to accomplish whatever we believe we can do. This coming year is very exciting for the band, with UniBrass already on the horizon, along with multiple concerts both on and off campus. UYBB prides itself on its inclusivity, both in rehearsals and during socials. I hope to see as many of you as possible at VBar after rehearsals! Personally, I am delighted to lead the band as chair this year, to really show off what the University of York Brass Band has to offer!
