We are a student-run brass band with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere; there are no auditions and anyone studying in or around Cambridge is welcome. Rehearsals are held every Thursday, 8-10pm, and we perform at least one concert each term, as well as smaller group events such as busking, Christmas dinners, and Oktoberfest.
