The City of Cardiff Concert Band (Cardiff University Wind Band Society) is open to anbody regardless of age/standard/student status, although we do reccomend grade 5 standard playing. We are completely non-auditioned.
Rehearsals are held each Wednesday in Y Stiwdio which is on the first level of Cardiff University Students' Union from 18:30 until 20:30.
We provide woodwind, brass and percussion players the opportunity to continue playing music whilst at university purely for the enjoyment of doing so!
We perform regular concerts throughout the year, covering a wide range of musical genres from marches to musicals, to film scores, classical pieces and contemporary works too.
Last year we were recognised by the Students' Union for being a Gold standard society. In previous years we have also won the Best Medium Society award and have been shortlisted for many more.
We organise a large number of social events each year including band meals, bowling, a trip to the theatre, fancy dress socials, to an escape room, to the pub (ok, this happens weekly) and even a weekend away to Brecon. In addition to this, we head to a European country on tour. In the past we have visited France, Ireland, Germany, Belgium and Barcelona. We have so many plans for this year and we really hope that you may come and join us.
Please join the facebook group/email us to recieve more information.
We look forward to seeing you rehearsal !
