New Year, New Conductor, New Times

September 30, 2015

An almost-festive message from UYBB. Many thanks to those who attended our Christmas Concert, we hope you enjoyed it!

Next term brings some changes to rehearsal times. From January, we will be rehearsing on Sundays at 1930-2130, in the Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall.

Conducting us will be our new conductor, Leo Conroy. We'd also like to thank our outgoing conductor Matt Thomas for leading us for a fantastic 15 months.

Merry Christmas from everyone at UYBB!

Greetings, first years and welcome back everyone else!

Fourth! Band Triumph at UniBrass

July 1, 2014

We are back from a fantastic week in Lancaster and are thrilled to have been awarded 4th place in the University Brass Band Championships - beating some good university bands (Cardiff and Southampton) along the way! Adjudicators Derek Broadbent and Paul Andrews were particularly complimentary about our hymn tune, In Perfect Peace and really enjoyed our entertaining programme, complete with 'eccentric' conductor.

Thanks to everyone for all your hard work in getting the pieces up to scratch - it really did pay off.

Record-Breaking Brass!

UYBB is back after the Summer break and already breaking the record books!
