Concert Band

Welcome to the University of Sussex Concert Band

We are a woodwind and brass band who welcomes anyone from Brighton's community, including: Undergraduates, post-graduates, staff members, mature students, non-students and past members. Who meet on a weekly basis and mostly play music from films, TV and musicals including: Pirates of the Caribbean, The Incredibles, Phantom of the Opera and The Lion King. This year we are trying some new genres including Jazz where we will be playing pieces such as Atchafalaya. 

Rehearsals are every Tuesday, 5-7pm in Meeting Room 2. We are non-auditioning and welcome players of any standard to join in on rehearsals and our concerts. New members are accepted in the first few weeks of each term, so you can either join from the start of the acedemic year in September or in the Spring term. If you would like any more information about the band or to message us, hed over to our Facebook page - we regularly keep this upadated with an news about concerts, socials and changes to rehearsals. Alterntively you can send us an email at concertband@societies.sussexstudent.com. 

If you would like to play in the band, membership costs £10 for the whole year of £5 a term. The first few sessions are free so that you can get a feel for the band before you decide to commit. Student and Staff from both Sussex and Brighton Universities are welcome and the same process for joining is applicable for all.

Once you have paid your membership please add yourselves to our Member Group on Facebook, here we post all the details about events and socials click here see what we have been getting upto outside of band rehearsals.
