The University of Notitngham Brass Band

Fresh from our third place finish at UniBrass last year, we are a lively and enthusiastic band with great ambitions for the next few years. Brass Band is a large unauditioned group in Blowsoc and welcomes brass players of all abilities. We are based on a traditional brass band (although trumpets and french horns are allowed) and we play a wide variety of music from traditional brass band marches and hymns, to cheesy pop, film and TV themes. We get some fantastic playing experience from gigs throughout the year, especially during the Christmas period when we go carolling around Nottingham. This year we are planning on entering contests, including: Bolsover Festival of Brass, Whit Friday and UniBrass – and possibly more! Brass is a very friendly group with regular socials and plenty of opportunities for beer and curry, so come along and join us! Missing halls dinner for rehearsal? Have no fear, as we always hit Mooch after rehearsal for a burger!

Contact either of the managers if you have any questions or would like to express an interest in joining:

Manager - Sam Holmes - ppysrh@nottingham.ac.uk

Contests Manager - Marcie Williams - mzymw7@nottingham.ac.uk

Rehearsals: 5-7pm Friday, Music Department
