Wind Orchestra                                           

Welcome to the University of Warwick Wind Orchestra! The Wind Orchestra is a fully non-auditioned ensemble, so if you play wind, brass, percussion, string bass or even fancy trying a bit of conducting, why not give Wind Orchestra a try? We are a friendly bunch of people who enjoy performing and socialising together in a group.
 

 
 
 
 
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 three small ensembles; Feeling Saxy, Clarinet Choir and Flute choir, so there are plenty of opportunities for you to all get involved! 
 
During the year, we host several concerts both on and off campus, including performing in the Arts Centre's prestigious Butterworth Hall. We also compete in the National Concert Band Festival. This year we are excited to announce that we will be hosting famous names such as Emma Johnson and Wissam Boustany to run workshops with our members and enhance our musical development. The opportunities don't end there; we also have a Beginners' Wind programme that allows members to teach or learn an instrument from scratch! 
 
 
                     
The best way to get to know everyone in Wind Orchestra better is through our socials! In addition to our frequent visits to the Dirty Duck, we have a wide variety of other activities. Examples of these are film/quiz and pizza nights, the annual Music Centre Ball, a trip to see a musical, a treasure hunt (made by the exec especially for our new freshers) and pub golf with other music societies.
 
We also have yearly trips to showcase our talents outside of the University. Our most recent biennial tour of Europe has seen us performing in the EU Parliament in Strasbourg, and we have previously visited Munich and Budapest! We're excited to find out where we'll be touring to this year! We also have regular minitours to engage our members in much musical merriment across the UK. 
 
Have a look at our websiteFacebook, or our Twitter to see a bit more of Wind Orchestra and the things we do. If you are struggling to find us, search for the "Arts Centre" on this fancy interactive map. If you have any queries just drop the exec an email and we'll swiftly get back to you. You can find out more about this year's exec here.
