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.  In the academic year 2018/19, we entered the National Concert Band Festival for the first time, winning Gold Awards at both regional and national level!

The Band covers a range of repertoire, from wind band classics to film music to jazz.  For example, we have recently tackled music including Philip Sparke’s Spirit of the SequoiaPirates of the CaribbeanMoondanceHawaii Five O, and an arrangement of the overture to Candide.
