Exeter University Concert Band is a large, non-auditioned ensemble of wind, brass, and percussion instruments, and is open to absolutely anyone of any musical ability.
We rehearse every Thursday from 6.30-8.30pm in Kay House, Duryard. We play music from films and musicals, as well as music written specifically for Concert Bands and a selection of festive music that we play at our annual Topsham Christmas concert.
Every Easter, we go on tour for five days of music and activities! Previous tours have included Prague, Paris, and most recently both Antwerp and The Hague! We play concerts each term at the University and other sites around Exeter such as the quay, hold regular socials and pride ourselves on being welcoming and friendly, having won the ExTunes Ball Awards for Friendliest Society (2016) and Most-Improved Society (2017).
This year, in addition to our usually busy calendar, we hope to work with the local Royal Marine Band on a whole-band workshop, work with local primary schools to provide educational workshops, and host the South West's first Inter-University Concert Band event. There's never been a better time to join Exeter University Concert Band!
Anyone is able to join, and there is even the opportunity to try your hand at conducting the band too, as one of our student conductors. We always love seeing new musical faces!
