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 Tower of Power and Atchafalaya. 

Rehearsals are every Tuesday, 6-8pm 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.
