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.
