It’s been a hard year for everyone, and tough for players around the world to no longer be able to join together and make music. That’s not to say, though, that we’ve been doing nothing throughout the year. We’ve continued to socials virtually, and made a number of virtual recordings, now available on our YouTube channel.
This term, Summer 2021, we’ve finally been able to get back together and rehearse for UniBrass 2021. This year UniBrass is being held in Sheffield as a non-competitive event with a mixture of in-person and pre-recorded University Brass Bands. It feels great to be back in the band room with a goal to work towards, and we’re looking forward to the competition!
We hope you are all doing well in these unprecedented and uncertain times. We are excited to announce that the band is branching out in terms of social media. Follow us on Instagram (@_uybb_) for wholesome content! There are no posts yet, however we expect to be posting soon.
We were hoping not to have to write this post, but sadly it has come to it. YUSU has advised, in accordance with University and government advice, that we cancel all group meetings and performances next term. This means we shall not be holding rehearsals, attending WhitFriday, and we will be cancelling our summer concert. It is a real shame to have to cut this year short!
On a more positive note, the committee would like to say that we are very proud of the work the band has put in this year.
We are drawing close to Freshers Fair, which will be held this Saturday (5th October).The UYBB stall (# 28) will be in the Sports Centre Main Hall (Zone 6). Please do come along, sign up to the mailing list, and have a chat!
