Windband Society runs a non-auditioned wind band which goes by the name 'City of Cardiff Concert Band'. We are open to everyone regardless of age, standard or student status - including students of other universities! (although we do recommend grade 5 ish standard playing).
Rehearsals are held each Wednesday in Room 3C/D which is on the third floor of Cardiff University Students' Union, from 18:00 to 20:15.
We provide woodwind, brass and percussion players the opportunity to continue playing in a band 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 - something for all tastes!
We organise a large number of social events each year including band meals, quizzes, concert trips, fancy dress socials, to the pub (ok, this happens weekly) and even a weekend away to Brecon. In addition to this, we host an annual tour to Europe. In the past we have visited France, Ireland, Germany, Belgium, Barcelona and Amsterdam. In 2022 we were recognised by the Students' Union for being a Gold standard society and in the past have won the Best Medium Society award!
This year we are celebrating our 20th Anniversary and we hosted our 20th Anniversary Christmas Concert in December and over 100 of our current and past members took part! We have so many more exciting plans for 2023 and are always open to new members.
