Windband

Windband is a friendly society open to anyone who plays woodwind, brass or percussion instruments. There are no auditions and we warmly welcome musicians of all abilities. We play a variety of music from film scores to rock classics, as well as a few more challenging pieces. Favourites from last year include a Pirates of the Caribbean medley, and music from Disney films!

We play at least two concerts per academic year, one at Christmas and one at the end of the year. There is also a chance to perform as a soloist or as an ensemble in our concerts, just make sure you let us know! We also do a few smaller concerts throughout the year. We have previously performed at the Chinese New Year Celebrations, Ice Hockey Varsity and the CUSU Christmas Social.

Over the past few years we have won many awards, the CUSU award for ‘Best Society’ for 2011/12 and 2013/2014. More recently we have won the CUSU award for ‘Most Committed Society’ for 2015/2016 year and ‘Best Musical and Performance Society’ for the 2016/2017 year.

After each rehearsal, we migrate to the pub to relax and socialise. In addition to this, we try to do at least two socials every semester. These have previosuly included a barcrawl, lazertag and our Windband tradition of Christmas dinner together at Spoons! The Windband committee are always open to new suggestions.

The committee believe that the Windband is a fun and enjoyable society for everyone to join. Our aims and objectives are as follows:

  • Be a fun and friendly society for everyone of all musical abilities
  • Play at least two concerts per academic year
  • Have a large variety of music in the band repertoire
  • Give performing and group playing opportunities to everyone
  • Give people a platform to meet new people from different courses

We meet every Monday from 6:30pm until 8:30pm in ET101
