Durham University Concert Band is a non-auditioned ensemble open to all woodwind, brass and percussion players. We aim to create a relaxed, friendly and informal atmosphere where everyone feels welcome, while at the same time playing music to an excellent standard. For the last two years we have performed at the National Concert Band Festival (NCBF), receiving a Gold Award and a place at the nationals both times!
The band covers a range of repertoire, from wind band classics and film music, to orchestral arrangements and jazz. For example, we have recently tackled music including Philip Sparke’s Spirit of the Sequoia, Pirates of the Caribbean, Moondance, Hawaii Five O, and an arrangement of the overture to Candide.
