The University of York Brass Band are pleased to announce that their first ever rehearsal will take place on Sunday 1st November at 8pm in the Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall on the University campus at Heslington. The band was formed during the summer vacation and is open to all Students and Staff at the University of York who play Brass or Percussion instruments. The band does not audition players and is open to players of any ability. The band will perform two or three concerts each year and is hoping to take part in the Whit Friday march contests in 2010. The band would like to thank the University of York Students' Union (YUSU) for their assistance in setting up the band.
