The University of Warwick Brass Society is the ideal way to get involved in music. Whether you already play brass or percussion, or you would like to learn, there is something for everyone in our four different ensembles. You can join Beginners or Intermediates if you are new to the brass world, audition for our stellar dectet or join the unauditioned main band which regularly contests.

BrassSoc is committed to maintaining a high standard of music across all the ensembles, as shown by the recent successes of our main brass band in contests around the country, as well as our performances at regular concerts. Of course, it’s not just about the music, and as a society we hold a wide range of socials and activities during the year, from bowling and bar crawls to our annual Pudding Social, as well as a yearly tour, which this year saw us in Cologne. Even if you don’t come from a traditional brass band background, there’s nothing to worry about! Many of our current members had no experience of playing in a brass band before coming to university, which is a testament to the quality and musical diversity that the society offers.

If this sounds like the perfect opportunity for you, we are always very excited to welcome new members to the society, and I hope to see you at a rehearsal or concert soon! If you have any queries, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Emma Poppleton, Brass Society President 2019-20
