From modern film and show tunes to more traditional repertoire, the Wind Orchestra play a wide variety of music, so there is sure to be something in the folder to suit your tastes. Our rehearsals are held on Mondays evenings from 6-8:30pm in various rooms in the Arts Centre. We also have four small ensembles; Double Reed Ensemble, Feeling Saxy, Liquorice Sticks and Flute Choir (our oboe and bassoon, saxophone, clarinet, and flute groups respectively), so there are plenty of opportunities for you to get involved!
We also have yearly trips to showcase our talents outside of the University. Our most recent biennial tour of Europe has taken us to Cologne, and we have previously visited Vienna, Strasbourg, Munich, and Budapest! We're excited to find out where we'll be touring to next year! We also have regular minitours to engage our members in much musical merriment across the UK.

Our Plans for Term 1 2020
While current restrictions mean we cannot meet as a whole orchestra, there will still be plenty of ways of getting involved with the society this year!
The biggest thing we will be doing this term is putting together many small groups of up to 6 people. We will match you up by instrument, ability, and music preference, and then provide music and rehearsal space for each group.
We will also still be holding a number of socials both online and (hopefully!) in person.
If you'd like to get involved, visit our facebook group or page for updates!
