Sign up to our Mailing List to find out more information about our group!
Concert Band is a friendly, relaxed & fun group with NO auditions necessary.
We rehearse every Tuesday 7-9 in the Charles Wilson Building on Campus.
We play music of varying difficulty; from traditional Concert Band repertoire to film scores. Everyone is welcome, however we do recommend players have a good grasp of reading music and are able to play to grade 2 or 3 level to ensure you get the most out of our group! If you're not sure of your ability, come along and have a go - we can always adapt parts to suit you!
In terms of players, our group is perfect for those who play woodwind (flute, oboe, clarinet etc), brass (trombone, trumpet, tuba, horns etc), saxophone, percussion (drums, xylophone, cymbals etc) and many others!
We also like to socialise, so after rehearsals we often go out as well! Previous socials have included:
- Crazy Golf
- Desserts at Madison's Cafe
- Pub nights
- Trips to see the Leicester Philharmonia Orchestra in concert at De Montfort Hall
- Pizza Socials
Our year highlight is always the Music Association Ball - dinner, drinks & dancing!

We are doing everything we can to keep face-to-face rehearsals possible and safe!
To do this, we are socially distancing players where possible, limiting sharing of music, keeping windows open and wiping down stands/surfaces.
To help us keep rehearsals going, please wear a face mask inside buildings, use hand sanitiser regularly, try to keep socially distanced where possible and take regular lateral flow tests - especially before coming to rehearsals! If you have any symptoms or are a contact of someone with COVID-19, please take a week off to avoid any spread within the band.
Rehearsal Times: Tuesdays 7-9pm
Rehearsal Location: Charles Wilson (see Facebook group for updates on rooms)
