University of St Andrews Wind Band
Open to all wind players and percussionists at the University
The University of St Andrews Wind Band is the largest un-auditioned ensemble at the University, and the number one stop for all wind players, regardless of experience. It is the only group of its kind in St Andrews, and plays a wide variety of music, from arrangements of film scores to purpose-written wind band music.
The Band plays a concert every semester, together with Big BUStA. Previous concerts have followed themes ranging from Disney or Good vs Evil to Around The World. Pieces have included Pirates of The Caribbean, Harry Potter, Mars (From Holst’s Planets Suite), as well as more traditional Scottish music such as the Hebrides Suite and original Wind Band music.
We pride ourselves on being able to offer students the chance to conduct, something which is extremely beneficial to the conductors and to the band members.
Wind Band Give it a Go!
Thursday 30th January, 7pm, The StAge
Whether you're returning to the band or brand new, come along to see what Wind Band is all about and join us for a social afterwards!
We have loads of exciting music for you this semester ranging from film scores to original wind band music. All you need is your instrument and yourself, but bring along your friends, flatmates and that random person you sit next to in a lecture that plays a musical instrument!
The band is completely student run (including conductors!) so, if you’re interested in conducting the band, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope to see lots of you there!
