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.

New academic year for the band!

September 27, 2018

Thus begins a new academic year in York! We welcome back to our returning band members and give a warm welcome to all the first years new to York. Now that Fresher's Week is in full swing and with term underway, we can look forward to an eventful year of brass banding.
If you would like to join the band (as a fresher or returning student), you will be able to find us at the Fresher's Fair (29th September) in the Roger Kirk Centre. We rehearse every Sunday from 7pm-9pm in the Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall and we're always happy to see new faces. New and prospective members can also check out our facebook group.

As we have done for a number of years now, the band will be taking part in Easingwold's annual Remembrance parade on Remembrance Sunday and we are proud we can continue to support this event.
The band will also be taking part in a number of different events through out this term. Our winter concert this year is scheduled for the 25th November, and will be in collaboration with the university wind orchestra. The band also has the privilge to be taking part in the carol service at York Minster again. Finally, we will be rounding off the year with some busking in York to raise funds for the band.

For more details about events, keep an eye on the events page as well as our Facebook and
Twitter feeds.
