About Us


Aims and Objectives:

  1. To provide an inclusive environment for brass, woodwind and percussion players of all abilities to play their instrument and socialise as like-minded people.
  2. To perform a diverse repertoire of concert band music at concerts for the university and wider community, at least one at the end of each term.
  3. To provide a platform from which individuals can further their musical experience through opportunities such as solo pieces and workshops with professional groups and schools.

 

Exeter University Concert Band is a large, non-auditioned group of fun and friendly musicians that welcomes woodwind, brass and percussion players of all abilities.

We rehearse every Thursday from 6.30-8.30pm in Kay House and perform concerts at the end of each university term at venues in and around Exeter including local churches and the Quay. We also perform at university events such as Arts Fest and the ExTunes Variety Show. Every Easter, we go on tour for five days of music and activities! Previous tours have included Prague, Paris, Antwerp & The Hague, and most recently Dusseldorf.

The music we play ranges from classical wind band repertoire such as Vaughan Williams’ English Folk Song Suite, to arrangements of familiar stage-and-screen soundtracks including Pirates of the Caribbean, Les Miserables, and Frozen just to name a few.

We hold regular socials and pride ourselves on being welcoming and friendly, having won ExTunes Ball Awards for Most Inclusive Society (2018) and Most-Improved Society (2017).

Additional activities that the band is looking to continue following their success this year are educational workshops with local primary schools, working with the local Royal Marines Band at Lympstone, and looking to collaborate with other university concert bands.

We look forward to welcoming many new members over the next year and hope you enjoy being a part of it as much as we do!

If you have any questions, please feel free to email our President, Matthew Leveridge at ml629@exeter.ac.uk.
