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 reccomend grade 5 standard playing).
Rehearsals are held each Wednesday in Y Stiwdio which is on the first level of Cardiff University Students' Union, from 18:00 until 20:00.
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, bowling, 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. We have so many plans for this year and we can't wait to meet all our new members!
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!
Please join the facebook group/email us for more information.
We look forward to seeing you at rehearsal!
