Auditions 2013

We’ll be at the Fresher’s Fair in LUU on Monday 23rd September, so come and sign up for an audition! These will be held the following weekend from Friday 27th – Sunday 29th September.

Each year the whole band re-auditions to ensure the best players make it into the line up. For the audition you don’t need to prepare anything – you’ll be asked to sight read a few sections from two or three pieces from our repertoire, followed by a short bit of improvisation.

If you can’t make it to Fresher’s Fair, be sure to email us at so that we can fit you in.

Hope to see you soon! LUUBB x
