Big Band

We explore the contemporary big band repertoire. Rehearsals take place in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.

Most wind and brass instruments are welcome, together with drummers, bass players, guitarists and keyboardists / pianists.

The Big Band plays a number of gigs throughout the academic year. As well as playing in the usual end of term concert, recently they have played at the Swanage Jazz Festival, the Hawkley Beer Festival, a number of local Jazz Cafés, and in the summer – together with the Alton College Jazz Band, they tour a number of pub gardens in the surrounding area!
