"Oxford University Brass Band (OUBB) is a full sized student-run brass band, where any brass player is welcome. The band was founded in 2005, and has more than 30 members. We usually rehearse on Sunday evening in the Music Faculty, and perform termly concerts at prestigious venues throughout Oxford. We also compete annually in the national UniBrass competition, which is a musical and social highlight of the year. Although the standard is high, the advantage of a brass band is that a large number of parts require different skill bases, meaning there is a place for everyone. The only auditions are short and informal, and are used for any principal seats in the band where multiple people are interested in the role. Considering the current COVID-19 pandemic, the band is constantly adapting to the safety regulations from the government and university. We will do as much playing as possible in a variety of formats, so please get in touch for the latest information if you are interested in joining the band. We would love to hear from you!"
