About Jazz and Big Band Society
ANNOUNCEMENT: Until further notice we will be running as an auditioned 12 piece jazz ensemble due to COVID-19 restrictions on group size, however we will also be running virtual big band sessions online which are open to anyone who would like to submit recordings, as well as our various other events throughout the year. Email us for audition information, or join our mailing list at our YUSU Fairs stall!
We are a non-auditioning Big Band that rehearse on Thursday evenings in the Music Department, playing a wide range of music including Swing, Jazz, Funk, Latin, Rock 'n' Roll and more. We welcome all saxophones, trumpets and trombones and have open auditions for our rhythm section at the start of the year.
Our society also hosts Jorvik Jazz Lounge, an inner-city jazz concert series in intimate venues for smaller student ensembles to perform alongside established professional jazz groups to an audience.
We also offer a range of activities for non-musicians including cheap music lessons, free entry to our socials and movie nights, free entry to our workshops and more! So please do send us an email if you would like to join and not be a playing member!
Thursdays, 7:00-9:00PM - E/058 in the Music Department
