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.
